About the Artist

 

 

Camille Barnes:

I grew up in New Orleans, Louisiana. 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 that 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.
