Glitter is  the medium of choice for New York City contemporary artist Camomile Hixon who paints images on canvas ranging from super-sized sparkling word messages to otherworldly flowers.

Camomile Hixon studies pop culture with super-sized words, images and symbols.  Certain pieces composed of huge glittering letters explore the layered meanings and subtle textures of words, a development from Hixon’s work as a songwriter and musician. She describes these paintings as “poetry fragments without the movement of melody”.

Her other works have included words and paintings where she seeks to “expand moments in time where ephemeral beauty becomes something more tangible.” Hixon also creates glitter environments and giant three-dimensional installations using cellophane.

“The art that I do is about trying to push people in the direction of great joy, of greater peace for themselves and for the world. It’s not a small idea that I have, and I don’t want to ever seem naive. But I feel if everyone does their part, we can get there, or get a lot closer sooner.”

Camomile’s art is held internationally in both public and private collections. Her works have been exhibited at The Lyman Allyn Art Museum, The American Textile History Museum, and The Children’s Museum of the Arts in SoHo, as well as in New York City’s Central Park.  Camomile has been featured on several television programs including HGTV’s Home By Novogratz and she is the artist behind The Missing Unicorn, an interactive street art project that became a viral global phenomenon.
