Camejo, 22, was on dean’s list, set to graduate
Camejo and Kent Daniel Miller, 23, were walking in a north Baltimore neighborhood near Maryland Institute College of Art at about 10:30 p.m. when both were struck by a 2005 GMC Yukon driven by Teresa Jackson, 48.
Miller’s injuries were not life threatening and he told Baltimore city Police that he and Camejo had left a tavern shortly before the accident.
Camejo attended Malibu High School and was an Ojai Studio Artists scholarship recipient in 2007 and 2005. According to a 2007 OVN story, Camejo was interested in expressing dreams and the subconscious in art and hoped to study in Italy. She was a participant in the “Made in Ojai III” and “Made in Ojai V” art exhibits.
OSA member Ruth Farnham remembered Camejo from the OSA scholarship applications. “In Gabriella’s scholarship applications, there were letters from instructors that were really nice, so she was well thought of,” said Farnham, “I knew she was on the dean’s list and was apparently going to graduate in May with honors.”
“She was really talented,” said fellow OSA member Gayel Childress, who added that Camejo’s mother was very supportive of her artistic pursuits. “It’s sad to hear.”
