Well guys, we owe you all a big apology... we have strung you along for weeks now about The Campbell Collective release but we have good news... WE. ARE. LIVE. That means we have 7 artists worth of unbelievably gorgeous paper works for sale on the website as we speak. If you missed our intro to TCC back in March you can find it here. Today we want to give credit where credit is due... to our April artists, of course! Let's begin, shall we?
Harrison Blackford is an abstract and impressionist artist, who believes there can never be enough color on a canvas. She enjoys using energetic colors and vibrant hues to inspire a work of art. Harrison is captivated by the fact that a single painting can illuminate a space and tie an entire room together. Her passionate use of color and expressive paint strokes evoke her personality into each one of her paintings.
Harrison grew up in Spartanburg, South Carolina and developed a deep interest in the arts and interior design at an early age. Later, studying art history and art at the University of the South: Sewanee, she continued to seek inspiration from historic artists as well as current artists of today. Harrison currently resides in Charleston, South Carolina and enjoys nothing more than a beautiful South Carolina day, windows up in her studio, and paint on her canvas
Holly Young has always been a creative and artistic person. After graduating with a BFA, she then focused my studies on Interior Decorating. Holly works out of a studio in her home which allows her to paint at any time of the day, and refill her cup of tea as needed. Holly is lucky to have a very supportive husband, two energetic daughters and a Maremma Sheepdog named Biggie.
Holly’s creative process in the studio is often unplanned, it's a moment by moment evolving process. Geometric shapes of color combine with bold patterns to create dynamic compositions.
Marquin Campbell, who is an integral partner at TCC (aka making this whole thing happen), is also an artist in our first release! Marquin is a designer and painter originally from Savannah, Georgia and now lives in Greenville, South Carolina.
She studied Drawing and Painting at The University of Georgia in Athens, Georgia and went on to study Fashion Design at Parsons School of Design in New York City. While in school she had very formative creative experiences studying abroad in both Cuba and Italy.
While classically trained, Marquin’s current work is a more contemporary palette and subject matter. Most of her inspiration comes from the coast, and she draws upon the memories of her childhood home on an island outside of Savannah, Georgia.
Mary Singleton is an artist living and working in New Orleans. She is known for her bright, Fauvist-influenced, contemporary and figurative floral paintings. Drawing her inspiration from both the tropical Flora of New Orleans, everyday lives and images collected along the way. Mary describes her artworks as a “a dialogue between the vivid surroundings of New Orleans, its eclectic inhabitants and the mutual influence upon one another."
While at LSU she received the nomination to attend Yale Norfolk and the Baton Rouge Art League's annual scholarship. Mary received a BFA from Louisiana State University. She currently spends her time painting in her studio, collecting plants and spending time with those dearest to her.
