Catholic Artist Spotlight - Cameron Smith

3

Today I am thrilled to share the artwork of Cameron Smith, a Catholic artist whose faith has dramatically inspired his work.

The painting Cameron has shared with us, entitled “Immaculate Heart of Mary”, has moved me so greatly in my devotional prayer life. Mary’s loving face, the expression in her eyes, and her invitation calling each of us into deeper relationship with her son Jesus inspire me each time I lay eyes on this piece. The companion piece, Sacred Heart of Jesus, is equally as stunning.

I invite you to visit Cameron’s website at www.smithcatholicart.com to view and purchase his art.

About the Artist:

Cameron Smith is an artist living in Wilmington, NC, with his wife and four children. An accomplished painter, Cameron just recently received an Award of Excellence in the Oil Painters of America 2010 Eastern Regional Juried Show. His paintings reflect the beauty he finds in the people and places around him, as well as in his Catholic faith which he says, “ultimately impacts all of my work.” Cameron and his wife, Kristen, are devout Catholics and homeschool their children. With the arts being an integral part of life, they’ve created Smith Catholic Art to be a family apostolate dedicated to producing original, contemporary, Catholic art. Currently, works by Cameron are featured, and the young Smiths are showing much interest and budding talent.

  1. Lisa,

    I’m thrilled to see Cameron’s work featured on CatholicMom! I have a 16X20 signed pencil of JPII as the Warrior hanging in my den. Such beauty and power! In Blessed John Paul’s weakness and brokeness, God was most glorified. Cameron’s new work is breathtaking!

  2. Lisa,
    I am so happy that you are sharing Cameron’s beautiful work with your readers! I know Cameron and his family personally as our family’s attend the same church and homeschool group together. We have both the Immaculate Heart and Sacred Heart prints in our home and they are incredible pieces of artwork! His sacred paintings lift your heart, soul, and mind to thoughts of Heaven and Cameron’s love for his faith is evident through his paintings and sketches! May all who see Cameron’s work be blessed forever!

  3. I stumbled on Cameron’s Sacred Heart piece yesterday. I bought the canvas print today. Then I saw the Immaculate Heart and got it too. I must admit, the Immaculate image is the first image of our Mother that moved me to tears. There is a unique and profound authenticity revealed in the images of our Lord and His Mother that I’ve never seen before. I have a feeling these images will be mainstream very soon.
    In Christ,
    Neil
