I'm Camilla, a freelance realist artist and illustrator from Germany.
After a detour through videogame development as a narrative designer, I'm now developing my own body of work.
I mainly do fine art drawings, covers and illustrations for printed media and linework for comics.
I'm also currently developing an original story as well as several stories about WW2 based on my grandparents' experiences.
I love the romance of the sea and winding trees!
Camilla Roeder is a german realist artist and illustrator.
Born in Cologne, surrounded by roman ruins and into two families with eventful personal histories of WW2, her interest in the past began at a young age.
Camilla's works encapsulate an ephemeral narrative; by giving no clear beginning nor ending to the storyline of her artworks, they live on in a constant, unchanging state. Camilla aspires to create works that feel real and move the viewer to wonder about the people depicted and their lives. She wants to celebrate life but also remind her audience of the past, thereby doing her part in the fight against forgetting. Themes of loss, solace, life and death can be found in all of her works.
