7 Watchers

"Marsh Views", original 30in x 30in acrylic painting by artist, Camile Fontaine.

Camile Fontaine, a former resident of both Edisto and Hawai'i, has had a successful art career spanning several decades. Her trademark impressionistic and boldly colored works are immediately noticeable. She uses color in a unique manner to evoke strong emotions.

As a child here in the 1970's, most of the handful of families had some connection to the shrimping industry. Hers was no exception-
grandparents Capt. George and Annie Lee Fontaine were at one end of Dock Site Rd. and Weldon at Bell Buoys' on the other!
The magic of watching the boats come in, trailing seabirds and hearing the Gullah gossip around the heading table while checking on the crab traps...are indelible memories.

Her work can be seen locally at:
The Edingsville Grocery Restaurant
The Thibault Gallery in Beaufort
On- line at AmyLauren's
and at her quirky/cool studio on Laurens Street in Aiken SC
