Frances Campbell

Contemporary landscape paintings
Acrylic and mixed media
Cambridge

Following a degree in Fine Art Printmaking at Falmouth School of Art in the late 1980s I returned to my home city of Cambridge and participated in exhibitions both locally and nationally. After a break of some years I re-discovered the excitement that creating art can bring and the joy of an uninterrupted day in my garden studio. 

My recent seascapes and landscapes explore the balance between realism and abstraction and are inspired by the movement of the water and the ever changing light this brings.

I start with lots of quick sketches aiming to capture the essence of a place and to narrow down the parts that really interest me. Back in the studio these are developed into paintings with acrylics, collage and a mix of printmaking and drawing techniques. Colours are built up, blended and then often scraped away, often over weeks or months to create rich textures and colours.

 I exhibit with Byard Art in Cambridge and the Cambridge Drawing Society. I welcome visitors during Open Studios and also at other times by appointment.
