Traveling the world, Angela Cameron creates beautiful images that will resonate with you and your space. Original Art collections are carefully curated for their visual connectivity and ease to live with in your modern cottage. She believes that surrounding yourself with unique art that you love and connect with is essential for your best interior lifestyle. “I believe this makes a difference in who we are and how we live emotionally, personally and professionally.” Angela’s approach to photography is to be in nature, connect with surroundings and utilize in camera techniques (a minimum of alteration) that add a painterly, emotional aspect to the image. “It’s about resonating with a place, the light and what I see and create.”
“Fluent,” not only popular, but also one of Angela’s own favorite ocean images, is shown in the space above designed by Lizzie Green of Popix Design in Malibu, CA. Colorful light at sunset allows this seascape to express a calm feel with vibrant tones. The West Coast light is unique and soft that captures the beautiful texture of the sea.
