Camile Fontaine talks about the 'aesthetic life.' "French poet and art critic, Charles Baudelaire (April 9, 1821—August 31, 1867) once said, art is an artificial paradise." "However," Miss Fontaine says, "Kauai is a living paradise. Among the whirling riots of colorful trees, luminous tropical flowers, the blue forever of the horizon one finds peace in this lush landscape. My paintings are a love letter to Hawaii, Hawaiians, the travelers, lingering dreamers and many devoted collectors who are swept up by the embrace of this island, Kauai."
Miss Fontaine was born in Sarasota, Florida in 1969 to, as she describes it, "a couple-a dizzy art students." Having the foundation of successful artistic parents allowed for Miss Fontaine to discover her own deeper inspiration and unique style through the aesthetic life of Kauai. She has been a resident of Hawaii for over 30 years and enjoys her home and upcountry studio, complete with local boy and ornery persian cat!
