Camille Rendal is originally from California and now resides in Wyoming where she works as a professional artist and educator. Camille was the head of sculpture and art programs at Central Michigan University and Front Range Community College in Colorado. She now teaches at colleges in the Santa Fe area as well as private classes. As an educator she enjoys inspiring others to find their creative voices.
Rendal works in a variety of media: metalsmithing, medallic art, sculpture, mixed media and painting. The media is chosen to suit the concept she investigating.
“As a metalsmith and woodworker, I enjoy the alchemical transformation that the materials go through. Lately, my challenge to myself is to work more organically with the materials.”
Her works are inspired by the practices of metaphysics, astronomy, physics and alchemy, containing coded symbolism that is layered into each final piece.
