Fiona Campbell is a contemporary artist currently based in Somerset, UK. Raised in Kenya, she studied Fine Art (sculpture) at the Byam Shaw School of Art, London, gained a PGCE at Exeter University and is currently studying for an MA in Fine Art at Bath Spa University.
Fiona makes predominantly sculptural and installation work using mixed media, particularly discarded, found and reclaimed materials. Materiality and process are central to her practice. She exhibits extensively, works to commission, runs community projects and teaches art. In 2015 Fiona curated, managed and featured in an ambitious Arts Council funded project ‘step in stone‘ involving site-specific artscapes in quarries, linking culture and environment. In 2016 she created a 4m hand woven canopy as a focal piece for Sarah Eberle’s Viking Cruises Mekong Garden, RHS Chelsea Flower Show, which won gold and best artisan garden. This year, she was selected for the Ingruttati Palermo workshop and exhibition, a collateral 5x5x5 event, part of Manifesta12. Fiona regularly shows with Maureen Michaelson Gallery, London. Awards include the Environmental Award for Devon Recycled Sculpture Trail ’14, first prize Atkinson Gallery Summer Show ’11, and DSWF 3d Wildlife Artist of the Year ’09. She was highly commended for her work as Green Capital Artist in Residence ’12, culminating in exhibitions at the Arnolfini, Harbour and Create Centre, Bristol. Fiona is a Rep for Somerset Art Works.
