Joshua Campbell

Joshua began drawing and painting at an early age with the support of his mother, an old master painter. At age eleven he began classes with his mother's teacher at the Evelyn Raper School of Art in Virginia. Ms. Raper taught the techniques of the old masters. Though Joshua completed the foundation courses with Ms. Raper, he never formally studied oil painting with her. But this experience would have an impact on the core of Joshua's style and sensibility.

Joshua graduated with a dual major in illustration and photography at Virginia Commonwealth University. It was during this time at college that he began experimenting, outside of his courses, with the old master techniques in painting. Drawing from knowledge he gained as a teenager from Ms. Raper, general observance of works from old masters, painting techniques used in illustration as well as the visual acuteness of photography studied in college, Joshua has developed his own technique and unique style.
