About Todd Camp:
Todd Camp was born in rural Ashland, Ohio in 1966 where his interest in nature and art was apparent and nurtured at an early age. His formal studies at the Columbus College of Art & Design began in 1985 where he earned a B.F.A. with Honors.
After graduation, Todd began an extraordinary teaching career that has lasted over 33 years. His innovative style for pushing students beyond their limits contributed to the enhancement of thousands of students lives over the course of his tenure. Camp says “My students inspire me and my work with their ideas”. Todd’s award winning paintings, drawings, and clay, adorn numerous regional, national and international corporate & private collections while his limited edition prints are distributed worldwide. His unique wax paintings and illuminated sculpture were featured on HGTV’s “That’s Clever”. “My current work is driven by observations of the everyday. Small, interesting, and seemingly insignificant objects capture my attention and become subject for paintings & drawings”. During this time he also accumulated numerous awards, national exhibitions, International corporate & private patronage of his innovative art. In 2004 Todd decided to leave teaching and pursue his art on a full time basis. The result was the beginning of a new series of work that continues to grow and develop today. “I always look deep into the obvious for something unseen, another way of looking at an idea”. Some of his influences include travel, water, air qualities and observations while commuting to and from Columbus, all of which contribute to a culmination of his unique vision. Viewers of Todd’s work might identify with a particular shape, color, or reflection that then leads them on a personal journey of remembrance. “I layer my art with multiple recollections of one observation. Some layers remain dominant in the final piece while others lie just beneath the surface of a more prominent thought. For the last 10 years, Todd has been the Assistant Arts Administrator at the Priscilla R. Tyson Cultural Arts Center.
