Cameron Bird studied art at Emily Carr College of Art and Capillano College, where he specialized in commercial art and professional sign painting. He was mentored by KC Smith for over ten years and began painting with oils professionally in the 1990’s.
Bird’s paintings often depict scenes inspired from hiking, camping, and fishing trips in the Rocky Mountains. Working as a pack horse guide also provided him with plenty of reference material for his paintings. He often packs his tools with him to paint en plein air on these trips.
He lives in British Columbia with his wife and son and is represented in galleries across Canada.
