Eugenia - Ballet Dancer (1)

Eugenia Chapman Campbell is an exciting young Scottish artist working out of Cape Town. Widely regarded for works which focused on equine and human portraiture, Eugenia is now expanding her repertoire to include the human form in motion with an emphasis on light.

She achieved a full art scholarship at age 11 and went on to hold various solo exhibitions across the UK to establish herself as a career artist. While persuing her art, she also competed as an international event rider. Unfortunately, at the height of her competition years, she was forced to give up her passion for riding owing to the sudden onset of Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, more commonly known as ME or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), at age 17. The young artist attributes her recovery to her love for art.

Eugenia’s main inspiration for her works comes from painting images that provoke emotion, encourage action and conjure significance. This has seen her in great demand for commissions that capture “the best of what has been lost”. Her piece “Dancing with Light” is a demonstration in illustrating the perfect form of a dancer, at her prime, so that the moment may never be lost.

The core of Eugenia’s philosophy for creating art is reflected in her calm, endearing and bubbly personality. “Be kind, everyone is fighting a battle that you know nothing about. So add light where you can, be true to yourself and celebrate life whenever possible.”
