Nicole Campanello is a photographic artist, based in Houston, TX. A visual storyteller, she creates narrative images and series based on her life experiences. In her work, she has explored identity, the interior landscapes of life, and the influence of past, memories, and most recently, place—growing up in the countryside of Yorkshire, UK.

Her work has been featured in shows at Pictura Gallery, Bloomington IN and Hallie Brown Ford Gallery, Roseburg OR and in group shows across the United States, as well as internationally, including Tilt Gallery, Scottsdale, AZ, The Center for Fine Art Photography, Fort Collins, CO, and PH21 Gallery, Budapest, Hungary. Nicole has gained recognition placing in Photoludica’s Top 200 in 2016, and winning several exhibition (first place, best of show, and people’s choice) awards. Her photographs have been featured in publications, most recently SHOTS Magazine and Ain’t Bad Magazine.

Nicole obtained her BA in Photography summa cum laude in 2009, from Sam Houston University, Huntsville, TX.
