I have been a full-time fine artist working from home for the last six years. Nature and the vibrancy and speed of working with acrylic paint inspires me and I generally use it.
Although I use the same medium I like to experiment with painting on different surfaces, such as slate, hessian, wood, paper and canvas.
With a background in Psychology, Counselling and Education I have a keen interest in art therapy and have taken sessions with adults using art therapeutically.
Some of the diverse settings I have facilitated art in have been the HMS Caroline, Larne's Men's Shed, Whitehead's Circle of Friends and Women's Institute groups, various Schools and Whitehead Library. I co-facilitated the painting of the shelter on the Blackhead path, with Whitehead Youth Centre.
My work can be viewed on Instagram and bought through my Facebook page ; Joanne Campbell Artwork and is in private collections in New York, Japan, London, France and the UK. In have donated artwork to The Salvation Army and Hope House Ireland.
I hope to exhibit again in October 2019 in Carrickfergus Civic Centre under the name Quadart with three other local artists. Commissions are welcome.
