Camilla's Style

Camilla is interested in the colourful textiles and elaborate patterns seen internationally. Camilla works across both digital and hand-made formats, often drawing on her ipad to produce vibrant works that become prints - as seen in Pink Power Print.

 

She also more recently has started to work with pastel on paper, producing this series of fish and lobsters for Partnership Editions. 

“Growing up in various seaside towns I have always been drawn to imagery relating to the ocean. As a teenager I loved the hand painted signs depicting what you could have for lunch that day at the amazing cafe’s in Hastings, they seemed to be stuck in a different era and I couldn’t get enough! My recent work pays homage to those hand painted signs and old, scientific illustrations of sea life. Using vibrant oil pastels to create my own versions of my personal ideal catch of the day.” - Camilla Perkins

"At this time of year I always try to take as many opportunities as possible to head down to the sea, making the most of the last summer days before the weather turns. In this series I wanted to capture some of my favourite areas along the Sussex coastline. Brightly coloured fishing boats, chalk cliffs, and hand-painted signs depicting the catch of the day are the images that remind me of my childhood, this collection is my homage to the British seaside that I’m so lucky to have grown up by." - Camilla Perkins, Sea Air

Summertime At Charleston - An Online Exhibition By Camilla Perkins

We are so pleased to present an online solo exhibition by artist and illustrator Camilla Perkins. ‘Summertime at Charleston’ is a new series of original pieces, including pastel artworks and painted stools inspired by Charleston, home of artists Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant, and meeting place of the Bloomsbury Group. Camilla’s joyful and expressive collection draws inspiration from the surrounding landscape, gardens, and flora of Charleston.

Her work embodies its unique style and vibrancy through a range of brightly coloured oil palettes and imaginative compositions. She says - “I don’t know if anyone could visit the beautiful interiors and gardens at Charleston Farmhouse and not be utterly inspired.”

Drop 3 - Summer 2021

"There's something really special and magical about a tropical paradise contained within panels of intricate glass. I love how a whole, wild, natural world can be created often in the last place you would expect it. Within this series I wanted to celebrate some of my favourite glasshouses, I can't wait for the doors to re-open and I can explore these beautiful places once again!" - Camilla Perkins, Glasshouse

Spring Limited Edition Prints

Drop 2 - Spring 2021

“I have really found myself missing beautiful summer gardens so I wanted this series to be a celebration of vibrant greenhouses, trailing water lilies and plants creeping through burnt out ruins of stately homes. I’ve also had so much fun experimenting with monoprinting to capture some of my favourite Salcombe views. I wanted to find a way to replicate a really painterly image in small batches, and I love the way that each one has slightly different marks making them all unique.” - Camilla Perkins, Midsummer Gardens

Drop 1 - New Year 2021

“I was born and raised in East Sussex and can’t imagine calling anywhere else home, restrictions on travel have really made me appreciate this beautiful area that I often take for granted. I wanted to create a series of drawings that celebrate some of my favourite views, chalk cliffs, winding rivers, and the patchwork fields of the South Downs, elevated with the saturated colours of the oil pastels.” - Camilla Perkins, Chalk cliffs and Patchwork Fields

Drop 5 - Winter 2020

“Often the focus of my work is of imagining distant lands, for this series I wanted to apply that same feel but celebrating the dramatic landscape of the South Devon coast. Every time I go down there I’d have completely forgotten just how beautiful it is, the turquoise blue water and ancient rocks, I wanted to capture the essence of the landscape using a surreal colour palette that creates a dream-like world.” - Camilla Perkins
