Florence Camm (1874-1960) was born into an artistic family. Her father Thomas William Camm (1839-1912) had a stained glass studio and workshop where she would work with her elder brothers, Walter & Robert. Florence studied at the Birmingham Municipal School of Art, including time studying stained glass in the classes established by Henry Payne (1868-1940), who had himself learnt from Christopher Whall. The resulting Arts & Crafts aesthetic can be seen in the work of Florence and her two brothers, once they took over the family firm, T. W. Camm Studio, on their father’s death. Their work is characterised by intricate detail in the painting and the use of high quality glass.
