Oona Campbell

Oona Campbell's work engages with the seasonal drama of the landscape, whether it be Yorkshire where she has lived for the past four years, the West coast of Scotland which she visits regularly, or the soft rolling hills of her new home in Dorset. Wild, purple heather-clad moors during the middle of August, the extraordinary abundance of summer wild flowers, the first poppies and the snow of winter occur in seasonal rotation. Clouds, their constant flux, shapeshifting, dramatic light, and creation of weather continue to inspire her. They can be towering, ominous, speeding or chaotic, the ephemeral light shining within them provoking contemplation. 
Oona studied Visual and Performing Arts at Brighton College of Art and Design. Her childhood holidays were spent hiking in the Highlands of Scotland, which installed in her a deep love of wild and unspoilt landscapes. She is well known for her paintings of the Highlands and the West Coast of Scotland – windswept moorlands, mist enveloping the Grampians and the wild beaches of the Western Isles.

She moved to Yorkshire for several years and this landscape become a new inspiration for her work. Living in the heart of the Dales she was moved by the wide-open skies and moorland, in particular the area around Coverdale. She has recently returned to Dorset, reengaging with the landscape around her home.

Oona has exhibited with the Moncrieff-Bray Gallery for over 15 years and holds regular exhibitions in London. She is much sought after by both private and public collectors. Her work is represented in major collections including the City of Westminster Permanent Collection and the Royal Bank of Scotland.
