The meticulous working methods of Campbell’s hand-painted prints are complemented by an attention to detail in her domestic interiors and landscapes. Her use of bold colour, the reduction of space on the picture plane and her sense of design reveals an awareness of Margaret Preston’s printmaking with the subject and form yielding to a decorative and robust formalism.
Campbell was the winner of the Wynne Prize in 1992 and included in the touring survey exhibition, Federation: Australian Art and Society 1901-2000. Campbell’s work is held in the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra and the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney.
