Elise Campbell – Full of Wool
Elise Campbell is a textile artist and educator who works with wool, silk, and other natural fibres to create sculptural and wearable art. Originally from Ladysmith, BC, she now resides in Stillwater Lake, just outside of Kjipuktuk/Halifax, NS. Her focus in felting is to push wool as a medium to create contemporary connections through texture, surface design, and form. Using dye, resists, and natural fibre to fashion fabric, her sculptures tell stories of ecological movement, environmental stress, and the symbiotic relationship between humans and the natural world. Having grown up on the Pacific ocean and moving to the Atlantic coast as an adult, Elise’s works are heavily influenced by the sea, those who live within it, and the importance of protecting our ecosystems.
Elise’s work and creative research, including an international felting study, have been supported by grants from the Canada Council for the Arts and The Robert Pope Foundation. She has received awards and invitations from art galleries in Nova Scotia, British Columbia, and Ontario, and her work is held in private collections and regularly exhibited publicly.
