Camilla uses a refined palette of soft colours to create quiet and contemplative urban landscapes, removing contemporaneous distraction and allowing us to see—often for the first time—the beauty of the built environment.

In 2014 Camilla won Artist of the Year in Artists & Illustrators Magazine. This was followed in 2015 by a solo exhibition of new work presented by the Jonathan Cooper Gallery in Chelsea, London. She’s been shortlisted twice for the Sunday Times Watercolour Competition, in 2015 and 2017, and won the Chairman’s Prize at the ING Discerning Eye Exhibition in 2017.

Camilla lives and works in South Oxfordshire, England.

We looked at thousands of great artworks during the first stages of judging but Camilla’s painting was one to which all the panel returned again and again. Was it the celebratory bunting and controlled splashes of paint that attracted us to it? Or was it the coolly refined colour palette? Maybe it was the deceptively simple composition and charming subject choice? Or perhaps it was the rigorous draftsmanship under all those painterly textures? In truth, it was all those things and more. This is a deserving win for a very promising artist.
