We are currently showing recent work by Oona Campbell A leading landscape artist of her generation, Oona’s work is in numerous private and corporate collections including The Royal Bank of Scotland, GlaxoSmithKline  and the City of Wesminster. These paintings  are inspired by the dramatic landscapes of Scotland and Cornwall and the grandeur of nature ever changing under different weather conditions.  Oona’s palette captures the moodiness of the Scottish moors with their inky-blue skies contrasting with the vivid yellows of the gorse and heathers, or  by contrast the blue-grey squalls and sudden sunshine of the Cornish coast.  The thick impasto adds an urgency to the compostitons a love and joy of paint for paint’s sake.

If you would like to see work by any of our artists please call to make an appointment.
