Camille Walton

MY INSPIRATION IS DRAWN FROM TRADITIONAL FORMS BUT I LIKE TO UP THE ANTE WITH COMBINATIONS OF MATERIALS, PLAYFUL COLOURS AND SCALE.

Wellington-based contemporary jeweller Camille Walton was born in a small town just outside of Wellington to two creative parents - her mother, a sculptor, and her father, a painter.

“I myself spent my life exploring all kinds of creative outlets and found that I can encompass all the elements I enjoy from working in other mediums, into my jewellery.”

It is with a multitude of mediums and forms of expression; the colour and expressiveness of paintings to the detail of drawing and approach to form in sculpture, through to the tactile experience of modelling, that provides Camille with endless possibilities and an ability to work with different materials.
