As it is with many artists, Cameron's art training started in his youth. "Like most kids, I loved drawing pictures. From my earliest memories I can remember putting images down on paper. Whatever my imagination came up with would become the subject of my pencil. Make believe worlds, and the people that inhabited them. Pieces of machinery, or vehicles of the future. Everything was fun to draw". With instruction and encouragement from his mother,(an award winning water colorist), he developed his talents from an early age.
In 1995 he received his Bachelor's Degree of Fine Art in Illustration and Design, from Brigham Young University. He was greatly influenced
by his teachers,
Robert Barrett, and Richard Hull. "They taught me to pursue excellence - I can think of no greater complement."
He Interned in New York City in the spring and summer of 1995 and studied with two master artists,
Burton Silverman and
"My experience in New York was an amazing adventure. I met wonderful artists and rubbed shoulders with so many tallented people. I try to get back there as often as possible". His experience in New York opened his eyes to the possibilities available to artists.
He then went on to pursue a career in both fine art and commercial art. In addition to his painting, he has lent his talents to an educational software company as an Art Director and Illustrator for the last 13 years.
He sees his art as a way of capturing what he finds beautiful in the world. A way to communicate his love for people, places, and things. His paintings reflect this as he enjoys a variety of subject matters including Figurative, Landscape and Still life.
