Oil on Canvas
Stacey Kamp started painting when she was a child. Raised in Marin County, Stacey had the good fortune of being surrounded by Northern California’s famous natural beauty, a vibrant local arts community, and a grandmother who nurtured her with lessons in oil painting, pottery, photography and more.
Stacey holds a BA in Psychology and an MA in Counseling. For seven years Stacey worked as a volunteered for a non-profit as an Art Director at the Marin Interfaith Youth Outreach Teen Center in San Rafael. She was able to obtain grants and scholarships based on the volunteer work she was doing in the arts that paid for the majority of her education.
Although Art production and education was Stacey’s strong suit she continued to paint for pleasure throughout her life. It wasn’t until 2004 that Stacey actually began taking her artwork more seriously. With the purchase of her first home, she saw her lean budget and art supplies as an opportunity to decorate DIY-style. Her pragmatic efforts paid off: the Birch series was born, which she considers her first serious body of work. The bigger reward though, was rediscovering her passion for creating art.
Over the last 10 years, painting has become a growing source of personal, creative, emotional, and spiritual expression in Stacey’s life. Her work is sold nationally and internationally.
