Camille Engel oil paintings extol the splendor she sees in everyday objects. Revealing a life captivated by detail, Engel’s intricate works focus attention on the rich colors & textures found in her subjects.

An acute observer of detail, Engel is amazed & fascinated with light play, color & texture, & seeks to capture the richness of life. Each painting invites viewers to momentarily step into her world & share in her joy of the simple things, & experience the transcendent beauty all around us.

Along with a dedication to creating rich visual intricacies, Engel revels in painstaking details. Her expertise is in the creating of intrinsic texture, depth & color that evoke emotion & captivate the viewer.

What inspires Engel most is not a singular cultural message, nor even the master painters she admires, but rather her core beliefs. “For me,” Engel explains, “every morning is a fresh opportunity to find extraordinary joy in the most ordinary things. My art overflows out of that joy."
