About Cameron Pretendre

I was born and raised in Toronto and still live in Toronto.

I'm a musician / remixer and I blog about new music from around the world. When I decided to pick up a paint brush as another artist avenue, it was obvious to me that there had to be a musical vein running through all of my artwork.

My creative process: I listen to a track on repeat while creating each piece. The music leads the hand and mind to put paint on the canvas based on what I'm hearing. Each artwork is named for a song title that was listened to during the creative process.

I work with acrylics and mostly work on canvas or wood. I also use various other non-traditional items like sandpaper and alcohol distress things when needed.

Education

I am a self-taught painter drawing on my time spent in art galleries locally and throughout the world.
