Cameron, Lilias Ann

About the artist
Lilias Ann Cameron was born in Elgin, Scotland in 1933, and painted all her life. Her early years in Scotland continue to influence her work to this day. Her years spent in that cold and damp, mist-shrouded country left her with a craving for warm colour and sunshine. However, there's a starkness in many of her paintings that portray the harshness of the Scottish landscape with the wind-swept waves slapping at the shore below ominous high cliffs and boulders as gulls hover above, searching for food. Lilias' mother was an art teacher so she grew up in a home filled with paintings, embroidery, textiles and knitting which gave her an appreciation for hand crafts.
