About the Artist:
Camilla Webster is an artist, award-winning, best-selling author and journalist. She is focused on producing work to enhance wellbeing and raise social awareness. “I became a journalist to inform Americans about the world around them. As an artist, the mission of my paintings and photos is to generate a feeling, an experience, with more permanent impact and that’s very powerful,” she shares.
Her TEDx talk, “Art in Front of You,” which focuses on the art of calming down, from a collection she produced at Mana Contemporary, garnered her an invitation by Arianna Huffington to contribute to Thrive Global. Of the collection, Yahoo says, “Webster’s photos ask us to stop and attend, to engage in the practice of seeing by looking up, down, around, and in front of us.” Her work has been recognized by The Novogratz design team in their digital “artist of the day” invitational.
