    Stunning Art Work
 About Me - Mikki

My name is Mikki Campbell.  I was born in Canberra Australia and more recently moved to the Gold Coast. 


MY ARTIST PROFILE


I started painting when I was 14 for a couple of years until I was 16 when I was told “painting wasn’t a real job”. I gave it up until about 12 years ago when I started dabbling, did a landscape painting course and painted small and rather controlled little landscapes.


I have participated in many Art hobbyist courses and was fortunate enough to have a teacher who encouraged me to be wild, splash out, and loosen up! Today I do big art. (and some small! )Some of my art is abstract, colours design and texture vary according to my mood, spiritual state and finances.  I paint using acrylics (I am too impatient with oils) and psoca paint pens.


I paint because I love doing it, I am passionate about it. I carry an art journal with me to jot down my moments of inspiration, these can be a glint of water on rocks, imposing tree trunks and dead gnarled branches, the texture of sand after a wave leaves. I love visiting obscure galleries and checking out what other artists do and can be inspired by a certain brush stroke or lashings of paint. Then there are the times when I am quiet and just know what it is I need to put to canvas, I love those moments most of all. I believe that for me my spirit is the most important connection to my art and when I come from this place its when I produce my best work.


I love painting for others, I take their essence into my work and create from a space that knows and connects to them and again I produce pieces that are so very important to me and my relationship to them.
