Camille Holvoet was born in 1952 in San Francisco. She has been creating artwork at Creativity Explored since 2001.
Holvoet's preferred medium is oil pastel. Her pastels are rich blends of line and color, created with many overlapping layers. Her attention to spatial detail is evident in all of her art. Whether she is working on a small-scale drawing or a large-scale painting on canvas, the compositions are always well balanced and meticulously planned.
While she is best known for her pastel drawings of luscious cakes, pies, and pastries, Holvoet has expanded her subject matter to include interior scenes, portraits, ferris wheels, and other objects. The straightforward interior scenes are an especially interesting glimpse into Holvoet's memory of her former years spent in an institution. Since she started at Creativity Explored, we have witnessed Holvoet working on a larger scale, as well as experimenting with computer drawing media. She enjoys using a Wacom tablet to create digital drawings that combine text and imagery.
