Jacques Camp’s Bio
I have a passion for watercolor, and I am a self-taught artist!
The most important aspects in my art are color and line. I express energy and enthusiasm for what it is that inspires me to paint through the use of bright, bold color. My style has a quality of realism, but with a twist – color and line that is expressive, somewhat impressionistic, sometimes abstract, and often with perhaps a bit of whimsy! I “build” a painting through the process of layering pigment which is so unique to watercolor. The subjects I paint are often exaggerated in size and boldness, tending to personify my subject, as I want my observer to experience a feeling of delight and connection while viewing my work.
I am a member of the Tennessee Watercolor Society and an Associate member of the American Watercolor Society. I have been honored to win prizes and I continue daily to explore the world of watercolor.
