Rebecca Campbell's delightful, enigmatic paintings evoke a world of plants and animals that appear to be happily confined within the boundaries of their own contented universe. Add a vivid sense of design that instantly captures the eye and you have paintings that project immense appeal.
She was born in Stamford and grew up in Ireland where as a child she was surrounded by gardens and animals. Three months in India fired her imagination further, in particular for Mughal miniatures with their rich earth colours and bold designs. This influence remains the bedrock of much of her work. She was educated at City and Guilds Art School, London (1984 - 1987) receiving a 1st class Honours degree in illustrative arts.
Her amoury of skills is impressive and incorporates paintings, murals, panels and design work. A main stream player in the field of decorative arts, Rebecca's impeccable sense of colour and design coupled with a quirky sense of fun and a boundless imagination that seems to pluck ideas out of nowhere, give fuel to a strong narrative element.
