In her humorous portrayal of gentrified, quintessential England, Campbell illustrates an English history of exotic tastes, opulence and eccentricity, drawing on her own family history and childhood memories. Growing up, Campbell was surrounded by antiques and curios collected and bought back from Europe, Hong Kong, India and China by generations of her family.
Her work continues to be influenced by Mogul miniatures, Chinoiserie and medieval tapestries, having travelled extensively across India, China and Africa. In her new series Campbell wanted to work on a grander scale, giving her the freedom to explore more complex designs and the intricacies of the decorations in more detail.
