    Brian Cameron

    About the Artist

    photo by Michael MathersBrian Cameron was born and still lives on the northwest coast of Oregon where he is fortunate enough to have a home and studio on 4 acres of oceanfront dunes just south of the mouth of the Columbia river. This incredible setting with its vast open skies, long, horizontal oceanscapes, everchanging fields of grasses dotted with flowers and constant parade of wildlife, offers endless inspiration for an artist. Brian translates the vast and contemplative beauty of his beloved home into the visual language of painting.

    "The long horizon… the place where sky meets sea and land… that's my world! Space… big skies… solitude… the Northwest coast. I am privileged to wake each day where my eye can travel from Tillamook Rock lighthouse along the horizon line north to Cape Disappointment and North Head lighthouses. Hour by hour the skyscape is infinitely new. The ocean reflects the sky's changing color and light. Through the seasons the dune grasses grow from dead brown to green to golden. A landscape painters dream."

    A self-taught artist, he is lauded for his adaptability to many mediums. Always searching for a new way to communicate concept and thought, he shifts his focus quickly through choice of medium and/or theme, and is as skilled and comfortable working in the three dimensional realm, with chisel and a block of wood, as with brush and canvas.

    Brian Cameron’s work was originally available exclusively in the Cameron Gallery, which he and his wife Leslie owned and operated in Gearhart, from 1992 to 1996, and by commission through interior designers. From 1996 through 2002 his work was regularly shown at the Blue Pear in Portland, at the Triad Gallery in Newport and at the Beppu Gallery in Pacific City, OR. He has participated in many juried shows at the Cannon Beach Arts Association Gallery in Cannon Beach, Or., is represented at the Portland Art Museum Rental Sales Gallery, and has shown continuously at Riversea Gallery in Astoria, OR since 1998.

    His work has also been featured in Coastal Living magazine, Open Spaces magazine and on Portland's PDXPOSED television program. In 2005 he was commissioned to illustrate 'Encounters With Small Creatures By The Sea' written by Phyllis Knutson PHD and has written and illustrated a children's book ' What Woofie Wants'.

    Today Brian's furniture and artworks reside in the collections of art lovers and even some celebrities throughout the United States.

    Brian paints nearly every day at his studio by the Pacific ocean, surrounded by his family, a dog, a cat, wild rabbits and accompanied with a good sense of humor!
