About the Artist


Camille Demarinis has loved the wildness of nature since childhood, and hopes to never completely return from it. 

 



Artist's Statement


Yellow Butterwort is especially fascinating to me because of its carnivorous diet. It is selective in who will benefit from its nectar, animals who aren't up to the challenge become its victims. This slightly sinister viewpoint is the reason I was drawn to it. I enjoy plants that put up a fight.
