About

I live to Create and Create to Live!

Hi! My name is Camille and I am an obsessive compulsive creator from Jamaica. The U.S.A. has been my home since 1991. I was awarded the Maria Edna Effing Portfolio scholarship to the Savannah College of Art and Design and graduated with a BFA in Computer Art and Animation. All that painting and drawing came to a screeching halt once I had my daughter in 2002. I had no idea such a tiny thing could be so demanding...especially once we started to realize she is asthmatic and allergic to lots of foods! I found I no longer had the time or energy to paint/draw so I packed everything away. It didn't solve my problem of needing a creative outlet so I tried scrapbooking for a while which didn't last.

While strolling around Walmart one day I spotted a book on teaching yourself to crochet. Not sure what sparked, but I bought it and a couple skeins of yarn and just could not stop. It was portable and I could stop and start as needed. Someone offered to pay me to make a blanket which made me think I might turn my new found hobby into a source of income. I found I loathed craft fairs/shows so I looked around online and found Etsy. I have been working at my shop off and on since 2008. Finding myself divorced after almost 18 years of marriage, a single mom and unemployed (at that time) I went at it full blast. I even become friends with a wonderful Etsyian who happens to live nearby and she taught me how to knit!

In 2011 I took a chance and submitted some patterns to a couple magazines and have had several published! I've also had a couple of my rugs requested for photo shoots and a couple almost made it into a movie :)

My passion for painting has been rekindled and I have also fallen in love with Needle Felting. I teach art for Art a la Carte to Elementary School kids and I have started teaching my own workshops at The Art Station, The Art Place, Sewell Mill Cultural Center and The Marietta/Cobb Museum of Art. I have ventured into dollhouse miniatures with my painting and also the creation of tiny items to scale. One of my mini paintings was published in the UK Magazine The Dolls' House Magazine Issue #226 earlier this year (2017).

It's 2018 and I keep pushing and focusing on my passion to teach and create. July 8th will find me as a guest artist/demonstrator at the High Museum in Atlanta....so excited!
