Every Life has a story. Every Story is Art. Your life is your Art!
Boats, Buildings, Landscapes and Homes all tell stories. This is where we live and tell our stories. As children we played on the beaches. We fancied ourselves great adventurers along the shores and through the forests and fields. Places became homes and there memories were built.
A lot of my art is about places. When we see an abandoned home or view a panoramic landscape it's hard not to think about the people that lived there, worked there and made it their home. I like to think that my art is recording a history and imagining the lives, that is the art, that lives there now or in the past.
Thanks for visiting! Contact me for commissions or to purchase my art or prints.
Kevin Cameron is a self taught artist who sold his first painting at the Apple Bin Gallery in Kentville, NS almost 20 years ago. He has painted holiday window murals for a local coffee shop helping to brighten spirits during the season. Kevin was hired to illustrate labels for a local candle company which were used for product across Canada and the Eastern Untied States. He illustrated a children's book as well as a biography of a woman's escape from domestic abuse. Kevin also provided live and studio caricature services in the Kentville - Windsor community.
His first mural was at the age of 5 or 6 when he drew a large man's face with stubble and a cigar. He has done work in homes designing and painting script, art and murals.
Surrounded by the local beauty of the Annapolis Valley and raised on the picturesque peninsula of Nova Scotia, Kevin paints from his second storey studio surrounded by a vibrant and natural orchard and market near Wolfville.
A love for Creation and Sci-Fi/Fantasy and a desire to share his imagination combine to delight and inspire others with his art.
" I'm not the best artist, I know, but I put my heart and soul into everything I do. I think that's what matters most."
Bullying, cyber-bullying, anxiety, depression and yes, sadly sometimes even suicide. These are all societal problems that need fixing now!
I grew up as often on the receiving end of bullying. It leaves you wondering and asking "Why me?"
I believe that self-love, self esteem or whatever name you give it is a mental health issue that affects us all. What happens to one kid can have lasting damage to everyone around them. Even what seems as self inflicted hatred that should only affect a few actually oscillates or has a ripple effect moving outward to thousands. What affects one of us affects all of us even in the sense that if one person is bullied into silence then imagine what the world loses from the good that one person could have contributed!
