Camilla Cacciari studied Illustration in Florence, Italy, graduating in 2014.
She specialised in Children’s Books Illustration and Naturalist Illustration.
She has worked as a Workshop Facilitator and Art Teacher between 2013 and 2015.
In 2015 she moved to Bristol where she currently lives and works as Production Assistant in a Printing Press.

Her work has been exhibited in Florence, Modena, Naples, London and Bristol.
In August 2017 Hamilton House hosted her first solo exhibition “A Wild World: Visions of Magical Rituals and Memories from Faraway Places”.

Her style is influenced by Mediterranean folk art, children’s literature and legends, as well as Persian miniature, textile art and pottery from South America and Asia.
In her art she likes to create colourful scenes where reality, dreams and magic are deeply connected.

Gouaches and watercolours are her favourite tools but she also likes to experiment with lino printing.
