Fiona Campbell is a sculptor currently based in Somerset, UK. Born and bred in Kenya, she graduated from the Byam Shaw School of Art, London with distinction in Fine Art (sculpture), later gaining a PGCE at Exeter University. Fiona makes predominantly sculptural pieces using mixed media including steel, copper, wire, found and recycled materials. Her work reflects an interest in relationships within the natural world, vitalism and life’s cyclical persistence; textured, woven, primal forms, often in a state of emergence, growth or metamorphosis. Fiona’s sculptures are often approached as drawings in space, the linear structures and layers becoming a form of 3d mark making.
Fiona exhibits extensively, works to commission, runs community projects, teaches and holds artist-in-residence posts. Award winner of the DSWF Wildlife Artist of the Year ’09 and Atkinson Gallery Summer Show ’11, Fiona was highly commended for her work as Green Capital Artist in Residence ’12, culminating in exhibitions at the Arnolfini, Harbour and Create Centre, Bristol. Other work includes sculpture trails at Stourhead National Trust Estate ’11 and Magdalen Project ’13 with the Scraptors, of which she was a co-founder/member. She was recently selected for the Abundance curatorial programme – a Somerset Art Works/NGS site-specific Garden Trail in September ’13. Fiona is also the SAW Rep for East Mendip, Somerset.
