Camille Hawbaker is an emerging artist working in print and fiber media. Her artistic process began with drawing during childhood, and her skills have grown to include traditional “craft” practices like printmaking, weaving, dyeing, papermaking, and bookmaking. Her experiences from living in different cities in the central United States and travels abroad have also informed her artistic practice. Her nomadic past revealed to her how moving from one city to another can drastically change individual and collective identity, which she senses through language. Through her travels she began to see how much of what is known and believed is formed by circumstance, and her desire for connection with herself and others was both strengthened and hampered by these irreconcilable similarities. She currently lives and works in Omaha, Nebraska.
