Camille Barr is an Australian poet, who grew up in Byron Bay. She now lives in Torquay (Victoria, Australia) with her husband and four children. She has a love and respect for the natural environment that inspires her to explore the relationship of balance within systems, especially in relation to those that humans have created.
Camille was introduced to poetry at the age of 9 at school and was instantly captivated by this use of language to both tell a story and analyze an idea. She continued to write poetry for this purpose but did not pursue it as a career path until 2016, after a year studying architecture at Curtin University and writing the poem Behind the facade. Realizing her true passion was to use writing and art as a way to gain a deeper understanding of the world she swapped architecture for poetry and wrote the book Behind the Facade in 2016 (published 2017).
She recently completed a series of poetry art prints for Sparrow Poetry. Currently writing blog articles for Sparrow poetry and working on a second book, due for release in late 2018.
