John Campbell

Born in Jarrow in 1950, John studied Landscape Architecture at Leeds Polytechnic, qualifying in 1976.

After several years of dabbling, without much success, he made a concentrated effort, in 1982, to improve his watercolour technique. His style developed and improved rapidly, and by 1983 he had his first exhibition at Leeds Playhouse.

In 1985 he decided to take the plunge, by leaving his job and taking up full time painting. The inspiration for his paintings comes firstly from his love of watercolours as a medium and secondly from his love of the mountains. He has been a keen and active climber ever since he was first bitten by the bug in 1969.

Over the past 28 years John has had several one-man exhibitions and has been involved in many group exhibitions. His work is also continuously on display in many private galleries throughout Cumbria eg. Sharp Edge Gallery in Keswick, The Lion Gallery in Penrith, The Courtyard Gallery in Appleby.

In 1989 John achieved his lifelong ambition of moving permanently to the Lake District.

After several years of being involved in the running of the Mountain Painters Gallery in Patterdale and Sharp Edge Gallery in Keswick, John opened Stoddah Farm Studio to display his paintings and prints. This is situated adjacent to his home and is open to visitors whenever John or anyone else is around. As there are no strict opening times it may be best to ring before visiting.
