Cam Forrester

As a former Architectural Draftsman and retiree from 30 years in the golf industry as Golf Professional and Club Manager, Cam has painted for over 20 years, taking it up full time in 2017.

Cam does most of his painting and sketching outdoors. He has painted from mountaintops in the Yukon, carried a 50-pound pack on his back, hiked and painted in streams, painted under tarps in the snow under the watchful eye of Bald Eagles. He has painted sunrises and sunsets from boats and canoes in the spectacular Saskatchewan landscape. “It’s not just about the paint, it’s the sheer joy of being in the moment and having the ability to capture the wild outdoors on canvas.” Cam has facilitated numerous workshops, solo and group shows.

He is a member of the Men Who Paint, a group of five painters who began painting together in 2007. Inspired by the work and adventurous spirit of the early Canadian painters, the Men Who Paint has a preference for painting outside. The combined artistic experience of the group offers a unique diversity and their collective dynamic thrives on each individual’s passion for finding expression through interpretation of not only their Saskatchewan home but landscapes across Canada.
