I was born in 1960 in a small country town called Queenstown, from farming stock in the region called the Eastern Cape of South Africa. After completing my schooling in the coastal town of East London, I went to study Graphic Design for three years at the Cape Technikon in beautiful Cape Town. I now live in Stellenbosch near Cape Town with my husband James Campbell who is my greatest fan 😊
Having always harbored a desire to travel, I winded up in Israel, in the late 1980's, which was to become my life long passion. As an artist my obsession to paint Jerusalem was unquenchable. I lived there for three years and after having been exposed to this Middle Eastern symphony of colors, moods and themes, vastly differing from my original “out of Africa” experience, this contrast of interests is what makes my collection unique. From devoted Jewish Rabbi’s in prayer shawls to dusty skies from a herd of cattle, to quirky sports cartoons is just a few of the extreme themes I love to explore in painting.
For many years I illustrated on a freelance basis for National Medical, sports and tourist magazines which satisfied my love for the human condition through cartooning.
In the early 2000’s we bravely took a large collection of art to America which has opened up the way for future exhibitions, where my favoured themes include moody, often stormy landscapes, where dust and wild skies have become, to those familiar with my works, an Elizabeth Robertson Campbell trademark.
As you will see, commissioned art work is my forte’, so I would be honored to assist you in capturing your favourite scene or school, farm, estate or holiday sunset etc converted into an original oil or water color painting. A possible heirloom for future generations.
Other than my first passion of art, I have written a book called "The Choice" which is my true life love story which is about to be made into a movie, YES even in these unprecedented times! If you would like to know more about this, log onto Campbells-Choice and read up all about it and get to know us and where we are heading with this mammoth endeavour.
May this small Campbell-Art experience be a delight to you and enjoy our on-line exhibition, shot just before covid-19 struck our planet. We did it purely to bring awareness and interest for the movie project.
