Marleen Campbell

Art and creativity have always been very important elements of Marleen Campbell’s life. After retiring as a teacher and vice-principal, Campbell decided to embrace her passion for oil painting, taking her inspiration from the exceptional beauty of the Canadian landscape, and from her second love, tulips.
Campbell currently resides in Ottawa, but has lived and traveled throughout much of Canada; she is constantly in awe of Canada’s vast and natural beauty. She has found particular inspiration from the stunning colours of the landscapes surrounding her cottage in the Haliburton highlands. Campbell’s paintings reflect the richness and vibrancy of layered of colour within the changing seasons, especially autumn. Campbell’s second greatest inspiration stems, in part, from her Dutch heritage, in part from living in the Ottawa area—tulips. Their strong colours and bold shapes inspire her to celebrate their vibrancy.
Campbell’s paintings have been featured at the Gordon Harrison Gallery in Ottawa, Manotick Gallery and Framing, Plumes et Glisse in Tremblant, and Haliburton. Her work and commissioned pieces can be found in private collections throughout Canada, the United Kingdom, and New Zealand.
