Deborah Campbell

Painting, Textile

Born and brought up in Glasgow, Deborah graduated with a BA Hons degree in Printed Textile Design from Glasgow School of Art in 1987.

Following her graduation, Deborah worked for many years as a freelance artist collaborating with architects and interior designers in Glasgow and London on commissions for commercial and private interiors.

I worked as a part time art & design lecturer for 7 years, during which time I gained a lot of experience in teaching. This led me to develop workshops on a freelance basis for schools and community groups: aimed at enhancing people’s experience and awareness of the arts.

With the exception of the past year, due to the pandemic, I still run many workshops throughout the year working with individuals, textile groups and embroiderers guilds and get huge satisfaction from sharing ideas and introducing new methods of work.

In the last 15 years I’ve become more focused on my own art practice and taking my work in new directions while opening out to new audiences and exhibiting throughout Scotland at various art events, solo and group shows.
