The Black and White illustrations were all done on watercolor paper using archival inks. The very first C.Cambrea Art was done using these materials and evolved into color illustrations using a variety of inks, markers, and pens. Eventually the illustrations found their way on top of paint, tracing the stories and creatures within it. Follow the link above if you are interested in how that came to be. It wasn’t until moving to Vermont that I had the space to start painting on canvas. Before that I lived in tiny studio apartments or traveled wherever the wind blew me. I always had paper and markers for drawing no matter where I went.
Beginning stages of this piece. I look forward to watching this sensitive creature come to life.
Sometimes it’s fun to clean up the studio. I find all kinds of treasures. Like this tiny piece of paper…. I picked it up and read it and it was like I was meant to find it in that exact perfect moment.
the perfect studio find
It made it to my fav wall in the studio. ** UNTIL it finds it’s way into a painting 😉
For the longest time I couldn’t understand where it came from but I think it fell off one of the record albums.
The early works are my precious paintings and illustrations done prior to 2004. The year I started creating art for sale. Back when I lived in tiny NYC apartments or while traveling i created these obsessive psychedelic pieces that would take weeks and weeks to complete.
My art is now available on CordaRoys beanbag beds and footstools. You can see them in person at the CordaRoy’s showroom in Gainesville, Florida. CordaRoy’s are best known for their bean bags that transform into beds. You may have seen them on the ABC show Shark Tank. They got a deal with the QVC queen Lori Griener and have expanded the product line to include C.Cambrea Art on full, queen, and king sized bean bags, and matching footstools that transform into a giant pillow. I created four designs for these products as well as the ‘Shag Bag’. It’s an ALL Shag beanbag bed. It’s like laying in a cloud.
Aleatoric artist Cristine Cambrea uses intuition and emotion to guide her work

My mind wonders and I start doodling on top of things. Maybe I got a distracting phone call, maybe I drifted off into dream world but I doodled on my wax paper palette and out came this sweet sensitive fish.
