Of her work, Camling writes, "When I create illustrations my primary concern is to be able to make an others inspired to return to their childhood when there were no boundaries or restrictions on dreams. I also try to inspire children to use imagination and daydream. In a world of video games, violence and complexity, I want to bring back simplicity, innocence and a feeling of safety."
