Dina Campbell was born in 1959 in Gravir, South Lochs on the Isle of Lewis. She attended the Nicolson Institute but then left the island in 1977 to study at Edinburgh College of Art.
Whilst attending the School of Drawing and Painting she was privileged to be tutored by some of the most important figures in Scottish art - Sir Robin Philipson, Dame Elizabeth Blackadder and John Houston who took a particular interest in her work. In1981 having gained a BA Hons degree, she continued her studies by completing a Post Graduate year at Inverleith Studios in Edinburgh - graduating with distinction.
She was awarded the Andrew Grant Travel Scholarship and The George Jackson Hutchison Memorial Prize.
After graduation she travelled extensively throughout Europe and exhibited work in a number of galleries across central Scotland. Much of her work is now in private collections in the UK, USA and New Zealand.
For several years she was involved with promoting and facilitating Art in Healthcare – working on several projects as a lead artist for Tayside Healthcare Arts Trust and within NHS Fife.
Since returning full time to painting, she held her first solo exhibition during the 2012 Edinburgh Festival in Edinburgh’s West End and has exhibited continuously in a number of galleries since then. She has also been selected for the prestigious Royal Scottish Academy winter exhibition two years running.
Although currently working from her studio in Perthshire she spends a proportion of the year living and painting in the Western Isles.
