Meredith Campbell


Meredith is inspired by her lifelong passion for nature. Her background and achievements further illuminate this passion. She earned a degree in Biology from St. Lawrence University, followed by a certificate in Scientific Illustration, leading her to an early career in illustration. Her natural history illustrations and drawings have been published in numerous books, textbooks, journals and magazines.

After moving to Jackson Hole Wyoming in 1990, Meredith focused on the diverse wildlife of the west in her artwork. Meredith strives to capture the life and individuality of her subjects with the sensitivity of one who has truly immersed herself in their character. Her goal, as an artist, is to accurately portray her subjects, their individuality, and the beauty of nature’s diversity; giving the viewer a glimpse into their world with the feeling you are right there with her subjects.

As a student of the old masters in realism, combined with her studies with present day masters, Meredith strives to create paintings that accurately portray her subjects while working with light, design and brushwork to create a work of art.

Meredith paints in oils for her classic paintings on canvas or board. For her wooden bowl paintings she uses acrylic. “I love painting on wood. The dynamic shape of the bowl lends an additional design element which is both challenging and exciting.” Her bowl paintings originated as a form of “useable art” but over the years have been sought after as fine art pieces used for display.

A teacher as well as an artist, Meredith instructs drawing classes for the Yellowstone Institute, the Teton County School District, as well as private and small group drawing classes. She is a member of Oil Painters of America and the American Women Artists and has trained with several highly acclaimed artists, including Robert Bateman and Dave Wade.

She and her husband Tom have two children, Annalyssa and Cameron, and live in Wilson, Wyoming with several birds, dogs, and horses.
