Statement

I was born in Ontario, Canada and my family moved to British Columbia when I was ten.



My father was a writer and was known around literary circles in Ontario, which included writers like Farley Mowat - author of 'Never Cry Wolf'. My mother played the piano and was the perennial debutante, spreading her garland of roses whenever the occasion called for it.



Once in BC, or LaLa Land of the North, as it was locally named, the Campbells descended like a herd of hungry locusts upon the gentil hippy subculture of the West Coast.



It was the height of the Peace and Love counter culture in 1967 and my father promptly introduced me to the drums. There I spent the next twenty years refining my art. I still practice it today.



In my thirties I became interested in art but didn't decide to be an artist until I moved to LA in 1999. From there I practiced diligently everything I could. I moved to Thailand in 2007 and have commuted between there and North America as the need required.
