For over a decade, artist Camilla Webster (camillawebsterart.com) has used her craft as a way to give back to Palm Beach and its creative scene. With every brush stroke, Webster has told a story, bringing healing and inspiration off the canvas and into the local community.

Since moving to Palm Beach, Webster has exhibited works in exclusive galleries throughout the area and beyond, including Miami, London, Paris and New York. Through her worldwide travels, she has gathered artistic inspiration from all kinds of different cultures. “Nature and the human pursuit of joyful feelings or a spiritual high inspire much of my work,” Webster says. “The color and energy of Palm Beach and the Florida Keys have had a major impact in both landscapes and seascapes.”

Recently, Webster opened a studio among the visionary wonders of Palm Beach, creating a space for patrons to see a broad selection of her works. With this new home base, Webster’s paintings can tell the stories of South Florida’s rippling waves and swaying palm trees to locals and visitors alike. “Followers of my work love to see where I create and enjoy regular studio visits,” she says.

The studio space showcases the artist’s featured pieces from exhibits like Coral Springs Museum of Art and Paul Fisher Gallery, as well as standout works inspired by her time in Palm Beach. Dive deep into Webster’s mesmerizing narrative abstraction and explore her art through various different lenses and mediums. “I project a sense of idyllic memory through color, light and form, and each painting tells a story,” she says. Through acrylics, oils, paper, video and photography, Webster’s abstract ideas come to life and depict her adventures.

While Webster’s art highlights her love for the Sunshine State, her community efforts truly shine. During the pandemic, Webster launched The Art Altruist, a 501(c)3 working to support and heal the arts in Palm Beach County. “To be a thriving artist I want a thriving arts community, and The Art Altruist undertakes a mission with passion,” she says.

Webster also has an ongoing partnership with the Cancer Alliance of Help & Hope, a Palm Beach charity dedicated to bettering the lives of local children, women, men and families affected by cancer. Several of Webster’s pieces are on display at CAHH’s Palm Beach office, promoting a healing spirit among all. “It’s common to see things in my paintings that feel deeply, warmly familiar, inspiring, healing and universally uplifting,” she says. From her Unity H20 Collection, the donated piece “Oceans of You” captures Webster’s depiction of humanity and invites viewers to reflect on the calming waters rippling off the canvas.
