Hello, my name is Bridget Cameron.

Thank you for visiting and welcome to my blog. I do hope my blog inspires you.

   ABOUT ME

I’m a poet, photographer, artist, writer…  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.

My artworks are in many private collections around the globe, and my poetry and writings are published in many journals, magazines, e-zines, websites and in exhibitions in Australia and overseas.

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.   I also perform live poetry/storytelling/visual projections at Festivals, work in education and stage poetry/writing workshops for all ages.

I also love dancing and playing my own compositions on the piano, and have a youtube channel of my soul meditation music and videos: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCBlzt55dkN96UWhJTDhkLPA

Being creative is my ‘joie de vivre’. I love to have fun and to make others happy too.

    • Thank you Paula. This butterfly is one of many that I have painting since I was a child. It is based upon the Australian Admiral Butterfly. I have added my own colour scheme and interpretation. I really love your butterfly paintings, they are exquisite! 🙂

  2. I feel a connection with Bridget even though we live oceans apart. Initially that was through the warmth of her personality and our shared insights and experiences. This led to the enjoyment of accessing her incredibly diverse portfolio on line. One day, I might have the pleasure of viewing the original artistry that accompany her spiritual writing and to witness the habitat that generates so much of her portrayals 🙂

  3. Bridget, thank you for your invitation, and I do like your art, and I think the idea of writing an accompanying poem describing the piece in verse is an excellent idea 🙂

    Keep up the good work, and I wish you great success 😀

    Cheers 😀

    • You are welcome Des. I would have to agree, even though Chartres gets more attention! I think the ribbed vaulting with all of those stained-glass windows at Sainte Chapelle are indeed impressive! The light appears almost ethereal as it shines through, giving it a lovely aqua/bluey purple hue from a distance, almost akin to the Blue Mountains near Sydney. You may enjoy my Blue and Gold which has a similar feel, in macro. cheers to you, Bridget 🙂
