(Louisville, Ky.)Deceased artist Annmarie Campbell, daughter of Dawn Marie Yankeelov, enjoyed
many visits to Bernheim Arboretum and Research Forest in Bulllitt County, Ky., and other moments
of nature with her mother and sister studying nature from the flowers to the insects.
Her creative imagination applied during the last few years indicates her sympathy for life as a
worm, depicting human-like emotions and tendencies.
The matters of perspective and perception play in Annmarie Campbells works, as well as other
elements of landscapes, animals, and worlds of the sky. Visit the Zen Garden, her memorial area,
off the Lake Nevin Trail Extension, and take a moment to breath and enjoy the artistic birdhouses
done in her name.
