Ann

Art

ACA-LOGO Gallery-1317-w

Ann Campbell's work reflects her lifelong intereset in animals. Without sentimentality but with acute observation based in empathy she represents animals and birds as archetypes of themselves. The sheep, birds, baboons, zebras and horses formed in Ann's studio have a presence of playful solemnity, a gravitas and grace that derives from Ann's experience and love of animals.

 

However, her sculptural expression is wide-ranging, including numerous portraits, some of which were shown in The Society of Portrait Sculpture Exhibition.

Ann has travelled extensively, from an early childhood spent in Malaya and Italy to more recent explorations in China, South Africa and Sri Lanka. Ann studied in Birmingham, specialising in sculpture, and taught at Malvern Boys' College, Malvern Girls' College, Breden School and Hereford College of Art.

 

She has work in private collections, both in the UK and abroad, and has shown at various London galleries including the Portal and Osborne Studio. She has exhibited internationally and twice won the John Brandler sculpture prize at The Royal West of England Academy.
