Susan Campbell

Susan Campbell has been involved with the visual arts for many years, as a student, educator, researcher, artist and arts writer. With a background in journalism, she returned to college in 2010, graduating with a BTEC HND Fine Art, MPhil Irish Art History and PhD art history. 

She has worked as a freelance tour guide and guest lecturer at Dublin City Gallery the Hugh Lane, and as a teaching assistant at the University of Dublin, Trinity College. In contributing to publications such as the Visual Artist’s News Sheet and Irish Arts Review, she enjoys engaging with the work of contemporary artists. In addition to ongoing research, she spends much of her time pursuing print-making, painting, drawing, ceramics and weaving. 

I strongly believe in the value of creativity in society and individual lives. I am very much looking forward to learning more about everyday creative activities across Ireland, Northern Ireland, England, Scotland and Wales, and to contributing in whatever way I can as a volunteer advisor for Creative Lives.
