Camilla d'Errico - Fighting Body Shaming With Art

Camilla d'Errico is, as you may guess, my sister and is a renowned illustrator and painter. I worked with Camilla to build her online and retail business from 2008 until around 2013. Her business is thriving and she’s been at the forefront of online social media marketing, fan building and also art-brand licensing since we began working together.

We talk about her challenges growing up as an unconventional artist, the importance of being yourself, and her proactive and fierce stance around diversity, body shaming, and online bullying.

She is dedicated to creating a safe, open and inclusive community of art lovers and fans. Her latest sold-out solo show, 'Sky' is an homage to diversity and inclusion of all people.

We started her business in 2008, choosing to monetize and commercialize her art at a time when it was very frowned upon. We don't like being told, 'you can't!'

No stranger to criticism, Camilla has always honored herself, obstinately held onto her imagination, her love of play and fantasy, and honed her talent to become one of the most loved pop surrealist painters in the world.
