Western Australian Artist Elle Campbell grew up on a farm in Dandaragan surrounded by coastal landscapes stretching to Lancelin. From an early age she formed a strong kinaesthetic relationship with her natural surroundings, which has continued to inform her practice.
Art is a pivotal aspect of the way Elle sees, interacts and communicates with her world and has been encouraged by her family since childhood. Living overseas in early adulthood influenced Elle’s artistic palette and enriched and inspired her understanding of the world. Studying Fashion and Textile Design coupled with the tragic loss of her father, Elle immersed herself and dedicated endless hours into textile development and design. This creative expression has been further developed through her playful approach with bold colour, abstract form and uninhibited, fluid lines on silk and linen base cloth.
Elle feels her most comfortable and euphoric when experimenting with colour, exploring texture and expressing emotion in her works. It is the process and ritual of creating something new, over again, that fulfils her spiritual and mental wellbeing the most.
EC - Overview
Remaining guided by her intuition and deep sense of spirituality, Elle finds solace and a sense of self in the organic and unhinged approach to her work. Each artwork conveys authenticity and an intensity that is hoped to reveal the new, the raw and the intimate.


This raw and frenetic practice underpins her work, revealing interplays between colour and form, the past and present, the conscious and unconscious, the permeability and impermeability of art, life and existence. By incorporating daring colour palettes and bold expression, wielded by hours of physical activity, Campbell's bodies of work consider how visual art as a practice informs identity and being, particularly in response to loss & grief. Meditations of the emotional, physical and spiritual are forces present within her complex works, illuminated by both the fragility and strength of the human condition.  Campbell͛’s relationship with her natural surroundings was formed as a child growing up on a farm in rural Dandaragan, Western Australia. A conduit for expression, communication and comprehension, the artist͛’s practice is a ritualistic digesting of the here and now, what was, and what is yet to come.
