Hello, my name is Bridget Cameron.
Thank you for visiting and welcome to my blog. I do hope my blog inspires you.
I’m a poet, photographer, artist, writer, musician, counsellor … I see beauty in nature, in people. I like to document my discoveries by poetry, photo’s, through my paintings, fractal art, music and other writings.
I love to help people too, and am a spiritual, stress, depth and vocational counsellor, as well as an advocate for people with disabilities of all kinds. I also perform live poetry/storytelling/visual projections at Festivals, work in education, and stage poetry/writing workshops for all ages. :).
My artworks are in many private collections around the globe, and my poetry, articles, photos and illustrations are published in many books, journals, magazines, e-zines and, websites worldwide.
I have read and performed my poetry in many countries, and have had multiple poetry/art exhibitions (fine art, digital art, photographic, poetry and projections) in South Australia and digital poetry/art exhibitions in Paris 2013 and New York Exposure Exhibition 2013/2014, PhotoCat exhibition, Amsterdam 2017/8.
I also love dancing and playing my own compositions on the piano, and have a youtube channel, Bridget Cameron’s Blessings: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCBlzt55dkN96UWhJTDhkLPA of my SOUL MEDITATION MUSIC and videos, to help people relax and find some peace of mind. 🙂
Being creative is my ‘joie de vivre’. I love to have fun and to make others happy too.
