Camille came into this world full of armor. She possesses incredible inner strength, much to the chagrin of those who try to get close to her. She is often described as “Iron Sides” by her friends, but her seemingly impenetrable exterior hides an incredibly soft inner core. She is tender-hearted and enormously generous in spirit to those she allows into her small circle. Camille collects cats and names them after ex-lovers.

Rich with history and experience, she is full of worn glamour and patina. Though a show-stopper when shown by herself, Camille pairs well with many of the pieces from this series. She pairs particularly well with Astrid, Sabine and/or Fiona. She also works well side by side as part of a set with Imogen.

Influenced by her experience as a Master’s-level pediatric grief counselor and social worker, Tracy Casagrande Clancy’s work examines the influence of life and death among us, as evidenced in the tiniest details of our daily interactions.
Tracy also holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts, which inspired the integration of her love of photography with the encaustic process, an ancient painting form that utilizes both hot and cold wax application. Her work includes sculptural studies on the human form which combine her love of layering materials and the human body in all its presentations.
Layered foundational photographic and written images are communicated in Tracy’s encaustic work by employing a combination of techniques. Tracy’s process can require months of incorporating materials including wax, chalk, collage, acrylic, crushed glass, metal, pastel and oil paints in order to achieve depth, texture and pattern in her finished pieces. Casagrande Clancy’s work evokes an ethereal sensibility, encouraging the viewer to look deeper than the surface might initially suggest.
