An internationally acclaimed textile designer, Sarah Campbell was the co-founder of the renowned design partnership Collier Campbell with her sister Susan Collier. They worked together for more than fifty years making design for apparel, home furnishings, bedlinens, wallpapers in the UK, Europe and the US, for customers from Liberty of London to West Point.... Since Susan's early death in 2011, Sarah has worked independently, and has successfully established a new chapter in her creative story.
Verve, love of pattern and colour, and inventive freshness are the hallmarks of all Sarah Campbell’s work: the mark of her hand, the skilled brush, and her joy in painting sing out. Whatever the project she uniquely combines her expertise and experience with originality and joy, both serious and playful.
Alongside her continuing commercial collaborative design practice with 'high street' customers, Sarah undertakes private commissions for both printed and hand-painted fabrics – bespoke curtains, blinds, panels, upholstery and clothing all flourish under her brush. Of her many fruitful collaborations, one particular success story has been with Anthropologie in 2022, and another, ongoing, relationship with Museums&Galleries in the UK who produce a growing range of beautiful and lively stationery and papergoods.
Sarah is a speaker and tutor in design, runs workshops and is involved in education at several levels, from mentoring textile graduates to volunteering in her local comprehensive school.
Sarah's latest book, published by Bloomsbury, is 'Hand-painted Textiles, a Practical Guide to the Art of Painting on Fabric' which will be published in the UK mid-February and in the US in April and can be pre-ordered here:https://www.bloomsbury.com/uk/handpainted-textiles-9781789940640/
