Campbell attended SUNY Albany for her bachelor's and master's degrees and worked as an art critic for a local newspaper during those years. While her own artwork was exhibited in Albany and New York City, Campbell was known primarily for her articles written for magazines, newspapers, and art journals. She also lectured at museums and historical societies, and contributed writings for the exhibition, The White Mountains: Place and Perceptions (1980). Campbell published one book, New Hampshire Scenery: A Dictionary of Nineteenth-Century Artists of New Hampshire Mountain Landscapes , in 1985.
