Camille Young Fine Art

About Camille

Camille Young resides in Moraga, California. She paints in series and is currently working on a wildlife series featuring “big cats”, especially cheetahs. Her “origami” series featured Asian motifs in Western compositions reflective of her bi-racial ethnicity. Her subject matter ranges from landscapes of Northern California to figures. Her figure series often depict human loneliness in a world of instant communication. Some of her figures depict Argentine tango dancers with and often without partners. Her flower paintings are bright and vibrant. They express the beauty of the colors and shapes we see during that brief period that a flower is in full bloom.

Camille Young enjoys finding subject matter in places she has visited including Italy, Malta, the United Kingdom and China. From these locations she has painted cityscapes and waterways. Her intent is to convey the atmosphere of the place; the colors, the antiquity, the shapes of things.

Camille paints mostly in watercolour but also enjoys painting with oil and acrylic. With watercolor she likes to push the limits of the medium with multiple layers, exaggerated color, a vigorous brushstroke and sometimes an unexpected texture.

Camille Young is a signature member of the California Watercolor Society and the San Diego Watercolor Society. She has won numerous awards in watercolour competitive shows; international, national and regional. Her work is part of several private and public collections in the United States and Asia. Camille currently teaches an adult watercolor class at The Art Room in Lafayette, California.
