Camilla d'Errico is a first-generation Canadian, born in Ottawa, Ontario. Her Italian parents immigrated to Canada before she was born. From a young age her early interests included Saturday morning cartoons, comics, manga, and doodling fantasy elements in her textbooks. Camilla d'Errico's career as a painter began in 2006, when she participated in shows at Vancouver's Ayden Gallery in Gastown. Since early 2007, d'Errico has been showing her work in galleries across the United States and Canada, in Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Chicago, and Vancouver in what is known as the Lowbrow art movement. She is among the group of female artists, including Audrey Kawasaki and Amy Sol, who paint beautiful young girls in the pop surrealism category. With her work on Helmetgirls, d'Errico expanded upon the concept of headgear to include animals of all kinds, intertwining and juxtaposing her stylized, fantasy girls with lifelike animals. Her girls are unusually stunning, doe-eyed, and magnificently colorful female characters. The author lives in Vancouver, Canada.
