Hazel CAMPBELL Born 1947 -
Still life with Striped Fabric
Hazel Campbell has lived and worked in Galloway for most of her life and although she has no formal art education attendance at classes over a period of years enabled her I develop her own vigorous style of painting. She has a loose bold approach, working mainly in watercolour and oil using the Galloway Countryside as a stimulus for landscape. Still life and flowers are also subjects and like the landscapes being treated in an increasingly bold manner. Hazel has been a pupil of Archie Sutter Watt. The landscape work held in the Gracefield collection was commissioned as part of the Leading Lights Project of 2000, and the still life purchased from the artist in 2004. Hazel has exhibited her widely around Dumfries & Galloway and the UK including the Affordable Art Fair in London and at the Glasgow Art Fair.
