Wayne became known for painting pastel portraits in early 1990's. He commissioned portraits from patrons who visited the Abe Martin Lodge in The Brown County State Park, where he set up 2 to 3 days weekly  to demonstrate his art. Later he opened a small business in Shelbyville Indiana, (known as The Cabinet Barn 2).Where 100 or more of paintings are currently displayed.

Wayne has spent hundreds of hours on a single painting in his studio but fast loose plein air is his passion. Painting is his way of relaxation and he claims painting gives him a sense of purpose. Oil, Acrylic or Pastel paintings created and maintained properly can last hundreds if not thousands of years.


I would like to think that my paintings will be enjoyed for many generations.

Thank you for supporting my work.

Wayne E. Campbell

Make it a great day!
