Gill Cameron

Gill Cameron is a professional watercolour and mixed media artist with a B.F.A. from the University of Guelph. Her work as a graphic designer gives her a clear eye for form and content. The possibilities and complexities of colour, design, and the power of clean elemental imagery infuse her work.

Gill’s bold paintings build on the positive energy of scenes from nature. She describes her sense of wonder of the beauty of Canada through her lush landscapes. The complexities of colour and texture are interwoven into her design, whether it is fabric, mountains, vineyards or rock. She is intrigued by shapes and patterns and how they relate to each other in their natural habitat.

Gill has traveled extensively throughout her painting career. Her watercolours are inspired by her explorations of Georgian Bay, Killarney, the French River, Lake Superior, the Niagara Escarpment, Quebec, Tanzania and British Columbia.

Gill has received many awards for her work, including a Gold award in 2004 and a Silver award in 2007 from the Toronto Watercolour Society where she is a signature member. In 2010 she was elected into the Canadian Society of Painters in Watercolour and received the Creative Catalyst Award in the Open Water Exhibition at the J.B.Aird Gallery.

Gill has had numerous group and solo exhibitions in Toronto, Collingwood and Pointe au Baril, Ontario. Her studio is in Toronto and her work can be viewed there by appointment.  Her work is held in collections throughout Canada, the US, and Europe.
