Cressida Campbell is a renowned and gifted artist who depicts the essence of her familiar subjects in water colour, painted woodblocks and woodblock prints.

Conscious of the legacy of Margaret Preston, Campbell portrays beauty in everyday scenes such as domestic still lives, industrial maritime scenes and rooftops overlooking Sydney harbour. Her work is given depth through solid composition and vivid colour.

A fine draughtswoman and strong designer, her works show graphic elements reminiscent of Japanese prints. This book is the first comprehensive survey of her work in print. It spans pictures produced from 1984 to 2007 to guide the viewer through the imaginative world of one of Australia's most uncompromising artists.
