Lac La Hache, BC
Cameron Bird has grown up with a passion for the outdoors. Whether it was a family camping trip to the west coast of BC, a hunting excursion deep into the backwoods of the northern interior, or time spent exploring northern Ontario on his grandparents' farm, Cameron developed a love for nature and its surroundings at an early age. This love and passion has grown over the years and has become the foundation of the artist so many have come to know today.
Cameron began his career with sketching, which he still uses for reference on his larger studio oils. He studied at the Emily Carr College of Art and Capilano College where he studied commercial art. Each year Cameron gathers reference for his work while fishing, camping, and hiking in the mountains and outdoors. A particular interest for Cameron is to carry his paint box with him and capture the subjects first hand through plein air painting. Plein air was initially very overwhelming for Cameron as it was difficult for him to simplify landscapes and present clean colours in such vast settings, however years of practice and patience have given him the confidence and skill which can be seen today.
— "With my preferred subject matter in front of me, the possibilities are endless."
