Michelle Campbell is a freelance painter, based at The Briggait Studios in Glasgow.

Michelle produces a variety of vibrant contemporary paintings to exhibit in galleries, bars, restaurants and other public places, as well as taking on commissions.

Please get in touch via email if you have any queries regarding existing paintings or commissions.




Michelle was born in Ayrshire and moved to Glasgow in her early 20s. She graduated from the Glasgow School of Art in 2006 and now works from her studio at the Briggait. She is currently represented by Art Pistol Gallery in Hillhead.


Michelle experiences the world around her dominantly through colour, and is also interested in colour theory. She uses this as her language in creating a visual message.

Through painting Michelle recycles her memories, dreams and emotions as events within themselves. She uses varying subject matter to produce something tangible from her emotions and recollections, in turn creating a new sensory experience.

By breaking the image down and then restructuring it bit by bit, she gives each small part equal status, removing the idea of a focal point .

By working in many layers, Michelle develops two-way visual emotional dialogue with the painting itself, blurring the lines between abstract and representation.

"Color possesses me. I don't have to pursue it. It will possess me always, I know it. That is the meaning of this happy hour: Color and I are one. I am a painter.” 

Paul Klee
