Basic Information

  • Artist Statement

    Camille was born and raised in rural Northwest Louisiana where she learned to love animals, books, music and to make her own fun. She drew, painted, and sang from an early age and began learning drums, guitar, and theatre in high school. A jack of all trades, Camille studied Vocal Performance at the Hurley School of Music for two years, received her license in Cosmetology after studying at Guy's Academy for Hair, Skin, and Nails for a year, earned her B.A. in French from LSU Shreveport, and her MFA in Dramatic Writing from Goddard College. Camille has played in rock bands from high school onward and has performed and recorded in multiple genres from punk rock to folk to opera. She loves the sensory experience of musical theatre and music performance, including costumes, makeup, and all the magic that goes into creative work behind the scenes.
