Camille Barnes Studio
Providing Fine Art
"The first time that someone gave me some money, I was three years old; I looked up at my Mom and said, "Now I need to go buy some art supplies." Ever since this young age, I have been developing as an artist and exploring the possibilities of fine art. Although I have many talents as an artist painting has been my main focus. It is always exciting to experience the transformation of a blank canvas to a simple drawing and then to a painting full of life, color, and movement.
When I was a young girl I was extremely interested in art. I would spend countless hours at our family's antique gallery studying the fine art, carved wood, marble, old paintings, etchings and portraits. I was intrigued with the workmanship of people from so long ago. I was also in awe of the charm of the city, it's beauty was so inspirational.
I remember staying up all hours of the night practicing drawing. Art was an escape from some of the challenges I found to be difficult in real life. Art’s impact on my life changed as I grew older, I constantly found myself setting newer and higher goals. Through this glorious spiral upward, I realized the more I learn, the more I want to learn, grow, and discover. Art has helped in developing my character in many ways, with it I have learned to be patient, to be tenacious, and to be satisfied with obtaining goals I never thought I could reach. I have been blessed with a special gift and it's incredibly satisfying to know that I can use my talent to bring joy into the lives of others."
