Laura Diane Cameron

Artist Bio

Laura Diane Cameron is a Seattle-based artist, born and raised in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. She received a BFA in Painting from Washington State University and has been creating mixed media paintings for over two decades. Her work is an alchemical infusion of imaginal landscapes, mythic realms and the physical world and its denizens. She channels and creates visionary paintings of Goddesses and other powerful muses that are all about inspiration, healing and transformation into the new paradigm. She is most fascinated by the mysterious, the unusual and the uncanny.

Laura’s art is ever-evolving, and the materials range from ink wash and watercolors to oil and acrylic. She loves the tactile use of acrylic mediums, pastes and clay to build up textured and high-relief sculptural elements to her paintings, adding in cloth, nylon fiber, beads, shells, crystals and wire to the mix. Her projects and commissions have ranged from book illustrations, album cover art, movie props, portraits of people and animals, interior murals, Oracle decks, and visionary altarpieces for  Lightworkers, healers and empaths. On occasion, she teaches private lessons and art parties to creatives of all ages.
