|Passions and Pursuits|
Brian Sinfield Gallery, 127 The Hill, Burford, Oxon OX18 4RE. 2013
“This is our fourth exhibition of Rebecca’s paintings. This time her theme is passions and pursuits” a wry, affectionate celebration of all our pastimes and obsessions, whether fly fishing, stargazing or baking. With irrepressible flair and humour she captures a wealth of mood and detail: the slump of a slacking gardener, the paw of a sleeping cat hanging over a library sofa, a golf ball stranded in a field of skeptical sheep. Jostling with butterfly nets and prize-winning vegetables, Rebecca’s world is one of variety, eccentricity and joy.” Miranda Marks
|The Four Elements|

“Rebecca’s latest show was inspired by her extensive travels around the world. She focuses on farming and the countryside, landscapes altered to suit mankind – lavender fields, tea plantations, chicken runs, pig farms, you name it you see it all here. The regimented farming cycle continues in one form or another across the globe. To these images Rebecca brings her usual imaginative flair, coupled with a quirky humour which seems to spill out naturally with joyous abandon onto here canvases.”

|The English Country House|
|Morton Kuehnert, Richmond Avenue, Texas, USA 2010
Also shown at Louis C. Morton, la casa de subastas, Mexico City, Mexico 2008
In this series of paintings, Rebecca was invited by the gallery to produce a show with this theme. The English are known for being rather eccentric; she captures this showing life at a country estate. For example they adore their animals especially their dogs often affording them priority over humans and their passion for gardening, this includes creating whimsical wonderlands with topiary and growing vegetables in regimented patterns! “An English man’s home is his castle.”

“There is a fascinating mix to Rebecca’s work, imaginative design and humour being the strongest elements. Her exhibitions are usually themed, this present group being called the Collection. All the pictures are based on collective nouns such as a Leap of Leopards, a Pride of Peacocks, a Pack of Hounds.”

|Up the Garden Path PROVERBS AND PHRASES|
|Jonathan Cooper, Park Walk Gallery, London SW10 2006
Also shown at Chelsea Art Gallery, Palo Alto, California, USA 2005
"An animated take on a proverb of idiom, every illustration demands careful inspection to find the visual pun of connection to its title. Campbell's complex paintings which could breathe life into any children's book are busy with different characters - be they animals, people and even birds - captured in the middle of a daily routine."
"The work is just exquisite and detailed...jewel - like...
The artist's sense of humour and colour are reflected..."

|The Enchanted Garden|
|Jonathan Cooper, Park Walk Gallery, London SWIO
"A stag wanders through a Tuscan - red arboretum, hummingbirds hover over exotic flora and the king of the beasts has found its way to centre of a maze; at twlight, animal - shaped topiary seem to come to life and in the Tree of Life, a heron, toucan, monkey, pink flamingos and sleeping leopards all lie on its candelabra branches. These are just some of the delights of the Enchanted Garden..."
