Camilla is a member of the Oxford Art Society and has been invited to exhibit at the Mall Galleries by the art collector and critic John Penrose. She believes buildings are invariably beautiful, and at the right time of day can transform completely. Most of her painting is done in the UK, the period buildings which she’s attracted to are weathered and those features have certainly influenced her palette. Also by removing the qualities that assault the senses she’s inviting people to relax and to see the urban environment in a new way.
