Camilla d'Errico became an artist via a very unusual route: comics. She first was attracted to comics in high school where she was constantly drawing dragons and sexy girls for fun. Passion and practice pushed her forward, and she now has a thriving career in comics. But that was only the beginning...
Camilla was soon drawn to producing fine art. Her work is characterized by an inner complexity that spans the full array of human emotions and always manages to touch the soul. One thing can be counted on - every painting she does has at least three, four, or more emotions simultaneously radiating through her compelling imagery. This emotional richness is one of her hallmarks, and is one of the reasons she has developed such an ardent following.
Camilla is part of what may be the first art movement in Western history where women are not second-class citizens, but may even have an edge in the mind of the public when it comes to capturing the essence that is woman.
The thriving culture of innovative and emotionally evocative art that sprang up so forcefully in Los Angeles five years ago and which has now spread internationally was quick to embrace Camilla's work. She has had the good fortune of selling out every large and small show she's been in, over twenty by now, in galleries in Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, Seattle, Vancouver, and elsewhere.
Her next few years are already filled up with high profile shows in galleries the world over, and collaborations with a variety companies and artistic industries. Of late even Hollywood has come calling. Camilla is outgoing, a real "people person," and thus breaks all stereotypes of the shy, antisocial artist. She's got a definite zing, and emanates an upbeat passion for friends, family, art, and life -- but these qualities always walk hand in hand with her very evident profound and insightful side. It's a duality that permeates her paintings. There's always a piece of her heart, and perhaps all our hearts, in every one.
