is a never-ending source of inspiration for Ed Tussey. Winner of national
and state awards, Ed is a full-time, freelance artist who captures on
canvas the majesty of Alaska's interior, coastal and marine environments
and wildlife. A lifelong Alaskan, Ed lives on the Kenai Peninsula in
the coastal town of Homer, Alaska, with his wife Jacki and their daughters
Rachel and Rheanna.
Collectors of Ed Tussey's art are drawn to the impeccable detail with
which his brush carefully defines, and realistically portrays, birds,
mammals, and marine life in their natural settings. Ed's ability to
accurately represent Alaska's wildlife stems from years of observing
these magnificent creatures in their natural habitats on land and sea.
He studied art and oceanography while attending college in Washington
state. He has spend countless hours in remote wilderness areas and has
traveled extensively throughout the coastal waters of Alaska, the Pacific
Ocean and the Bering Sea.
Tusseys self-published their first limited edition print series in 1985,
and since then many of the editions have been collected and are listed
as sold out. Ed's originals and productions can be found in galleries,
museums and private collections throughout Alaska, the continental U.S.,
Canada, and around the world.
