Step into the magical world of artist Jill Louise Campbell
An anthology of over 80 paintings are profiled with her written stories focusing on seven collections including France, Tibet, India, and Italy and our home The Pacific North West!
With the world as her inspiration, yet a free spirit often floating in a world of imagination Jill's richly coloured watercolours are often layered in acrylic, fabric, gold leaf and oil. Usually in one sitting Jill completes her thought, journeying deeply in remembrance of places been and experienced.
France inspired such words as ....."Provence was our home for a school year. In 1989 we took our young daughters to live in a tiny hamlet in a remote part of France. We lived in a centuries old farm house.....the cared for land Neatly divided into plots allocated to grapes, lavender, and orchard trees......
Marcel and Madame Chauvin, well into their 80's became our neighbours for a school year while living in a remote hamlet in Province. Thumping his chest with pride M. Chauvin proclaims "Je suis un paysant," while reminiscing on a life rooted to soil, rock and sun. Their land, a wide patched skirt of orchard, grape vines and scattered bee hives, meets the rubble of rock and scrub trees at the base of mountains that hugged their lives."
Jill commands the positive and exuberance for a life through a romanced Fairytale interpretation of her home surroundings. Deeply influenced by Chagall her whimsy has a depth that resonates at a soul level. Home since 1990 Salt Spring Island feeds her revenue for nature.
What a joy it is to share my life, my inspired journeys, through my paintings and writings.
