Artist and writer, Sheila Cameron, left mainstream entertainment to focus on art and family in 2005. Executive and producing positions at companies like HBO, Matt Damon and Ben Affleck’s LivePlanet, MTV, American Photo Magazine and Movieline.com gives her painting and digital engagement a unique perspective. She generated worldwide attention with the FREE KATIE site and t-shirts and broke down barriers between art worlds with her online only, solo show and auction, “Jerry Saltz Personally Invited Me to Hell and I’m going”. She received her BA in Fine Art and Writing from Loyola University in Maryland and continues to explore the role of fine art in entertainment, social media, and activism from her home studio in Nevada City, California. She keeps personal and professional ties with Los Angeles, the city where she spent most of her life.
Since the presidential election of 2016, she has used her skills to advocate for women's issues through Indivisible Women Nevada County and as organizer of The Women's March Sacramento.
Fans and collectors have found engaging with Cameron online adds to their art buying experience. Often work will sell as she shares it in progress on Facebook and her eBay auctions always draw attention.
She is a founding member of DANK a collective in Nevada City.
