M. Camille Day is an artist from North Georgia, committed to capturing the people and places that inspire her imagination through painting. Her desire to expand her painting ability and her emergence as a full-time artist has led Camille to Europe as well as many places in the U. S. where she enjoys painting en plein air as well as in her studio. She is continuously inspired by the varied landscapes of the natural world, its people, animals and common places where beauty is sometimes overlooked.
Although she is largely self-taught and has been painting and drawing since childhood, Camille has had the benefit of studying under such great artists as Ann Templeton, Alan Flattmann, Thomas Nash, Quang Ho, Jim Richards, Lori Putnam and many others. As she tells of these experiences, “Each session with such wonderful instructors enables me to reach further into the well of my own abilities and translate not only what I see as beautiful to the viewer, but to make them feel why I chose that subject to paint.”
Today, Camille maintains a gallery/studio space in The Art Center, Blue Ridge Mountains Art Association, in Blue Ridge, GA, where she also teaches. She is a Signature Member of the Women Painters of the Southeast and the Southeastern Pastel Society, a member of Oil Painters of America, the Pastel Society of America, the American Impressionist Society and the Southern Appalachian Artist Guild, where she is a Signature Member and past President. In 2015 she served as the Women Painters of the Southeast awards judge, as well as the juror for two other Georgia shows. Camille Day has won numerous awards and her work has been juried into many national and international shows, many of which are now in private collection.
