Camille VandenBerge’s work is characterized by paradoxically strong and delicate distortions of the human and animal forms. Her work articulates a peaceful interiority that both reflect her own developing spirituality and, at its best, communicates with an observer’s sense of the same spiritual truth.

Daughter of two talented artists, Marilyn, a painter and Peter VandenBerge, an established sculptor, Camille remembers living in a house “overflowing with art,” everything from Tamayo to Thiebaud to Robert Arneson. Her aesthetic sensibility and her eye for form and color manifested at a very young age. She describes her youth as dressing up in costume and performing, habits that led to her continuing interest both in visual and dramatic arts receiving a B.F.A. at the University of California, Davis.
