Gill Cameron

Gill Cameron is a professional watercolour and mixed media artist living in Toronto, Canada. She is a member of the SCA, CSPWC, OSA, and a signature member of the TWS, where she has won numerous awards.

Gill’s bold paintings build on the positive energy of scenes from nature.  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 elemental imagery infuse her work. She is intrigued by shapes and patterns and how they relate to each other in their natural habitat.

Gill describes her sense of wonder of the beauty of landscape through her lush paintings. Her paintings are inspired by her explorations in Canada, Europe, New Zealand and Tanzania. 

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. Her work can also be seen at Butter Gallery~ Collingwood.

"I like to play with shapes, design, patterns and colour. My paintings end up as landscapes but they begin their process as colours and shapes that are pleasing to me in a dynamic composition. I like to have fun with them: dancing and music are always in the mix. This helps with the movemnet of the painting. I can't get enough of the endless vistas, with their amazing shapes and patterns, that the Canadian landscape has to offer. I continue to experiment with a new wax technique which means the paintings do not need to be framed under glass."
