Cameron Eaton, a recent new member at Sculptors Queensland, regularly attends the forum nights and life drawing sessions at Sculptors Queensland Shed.
This year, he has taken on the role of Exhibition Co-coordinator for the 2014 Shillam’s Prize. “Getting involved with a group like Sculptors Queensland is a real positive way to grow as an artist and a person. Spending time with people who share some of your passions and who are happy to pass on their experience can only be a good thing. And while that could be said of any activity you care to engage in, the trick is to get out and get active.”
Cameron took a drawing class in 2010, partly as a distraction from the stresses of working life, and discovered a passion for art making that was really unexpected. Cameron went on to study sculpture at the Brisbane Institute of Art in Windsor, “As a draftsman and designer, I spend a lot of time thinking about how things are made. With sculpture, I employ those same skills, while enjoying the satisfaction of bringing my ideas to life.”
