The Black and White illustrations are the foundation of my work. It all started with these obsessive  pen and ink drawings. ‘Pinned Together’ and ‘Elle’ were the earliest. Simple  ink on paper.  The very first C.Cambrea Art was done using these materials and evolved into color illustrations using a variety of inks, markers and pens and eventually the illustrations found their way on top of paint. Tracing the stories and creatures within it.

It wasn’t until moving to Vermont that I had the space to start painting on canvas. I still  find my way back to these black and white illustrations. It’s my go to travel medium.  I don’t leave home without my fav pens and paper.

Most of these originals have been sold. There’s  a couple that are still available. Hover over image to read info and availability of each piece and follow the links to view  full image and purchasing details.
