Biography

Frances Campbell works on paper, usually starting by rolling or wiping litho ink directly onto the surface. Layers are built up, blended then sometimes rubbed away, often over weeks or months to create rich textures and colours. Figures are cut from lino then hand pressed onto the image and further marks are added with the edge of a roller and sometimes oil pastel. Many of Frances Campbell’s pieces are based around the River Cam and she likes to capture the stillness of the water contrasted with the life and colour all around.
