Paintings Of Birds Portrayed As Welcome Trespassers In An Artist’s Studio

This series of paintings of birds pecking their way through paper were created by Camille Engel, a self-taught oil painter based in Nashville, Tennessee.

Camille and her husband Todd have created a bird sanctuary surrounding their home, and birds will often fly into the studio where Camille works which gave her the idea for the series entitled Trespasser.

Birds are depicted as welcome trespassers in the artist’s studio, a whimsical comment on how people destroy birds’ natural homes and the question, “What if birds were to take over our living environments?” Each painting invites viewers to momentarily step into Camille’s world and share in her joy of the simple things, and experience the transcendent beauty all around us.

Camille uses the “indirect layering” technique of the Dutch Masters to create her art and her oil paintings have been accepted into prestigious museum tours and art exhibitions from Santa Fe to New York City, winning numerous awards along the way.
