Drawing, Painting, Printmaking

Sleeman, Camille

About the artist
As a subject for painting, forests are brimming with content. They are portraits of time, telling stories of birth, death and regeneration. I am inspired by their ability to adapt and heal. For me they provide a place of refuge and inspiration. My paintings, like the landscapes they reference, evolve as a tangle of layers. Colour, paint and brushstroke move back and forth between dark and light, simplicity and detail, ephemeral and enduring. I strive to build connections between the elements of Nature, and the primitive sensations that attract me to it.

I was born, raised, and currently reside in Vancouver, BC. I studied Landscape Architecture at University of British Columbia and painting at Emily Carr University.
