Campbell studied Art at Chelsea College of Arts, before relocating to a remote island off the coast of Kenya, where she studied traditional African craft in the context of her own work. Liza takes etchings printed on silk and paper and antique photographs, and re-works them using ink and acrylic in bright, psychedelic formations. ‘Putting the Rave back into Engraving’ includes engravings dating back to the 18th Century.
