Currently residing in California, the state where he was born, Cam has developed his style from dark and surreal paintings to a what he is currently working on - simple hyperrealistic occult studies. The painting I chose to highlight, The Compact, contains some of my favorite examples of his incredible skill. In the last few years Cam has concentrated his studies on simple still lifes containing skulls or candles, and even combining the two with a draped fabric. He captures light from a candle flame like no other artist I know. At times this light is also shown through the thin layers of bone or hollows and cracks of a skull creating a delicate landscape. Darkness and light play with each other in perfect composition. His work has shown in galleries across the US and attracted buyers from across the glob. Cam has worked with bands, clothing companies, tattoo artist, and skateboard design as well creating a brand of his own.

As of October 2016, I intended to use this blog as an accompaniment to my Facebook page and Instagram page. On this blog I post information and updates about my work as well as once a month I highlighted an artist whose work I like (I stopped doing this when I opened my gallery www.GalleryBlueDoor.com). As of March 2017, I began posting a monthly Story Entry with an accompanying illustration of mine. In mid-2019 I took a break from this, but it will resume.
