After a long career in the motion picture industry, and as a licensed pyrotechnician and fire marshal, Jon Campbell decided to become a gentleman/painter.

This hasnt entirely worked out as planned, but as a result there has been produced a significant amount of antler sculpture, stone and silver jewelry, and the occasional painting.

While shunning the traditional Gallery route in bringing his work before the public, preferring to follow some of the more alternative methods, Jon has been shown recently at legitimate venues in Providence and currently in the Library space at URI.
