Katherine (Kate) Cameron was born in Hillhead, Glasgow, in 1874. She trained at the Glasgow School of Art from 1890 to 1893, and then at the Atelier Colarossi in Paris. She was part of the progressive group of young women artists discussed in Jude Burkhauser's Glasgow Girls. "Women in Art and Design 1880-1920." These women proclaimed themselves The Immortals, probably hoping to have their art become immortal, as some male artists had. There was definite discrimination against women in the art world of Scotland. The Glasgow Society of Lady Artists was formed in the 1880s, and Cameron became an active member. Cameron showed her watercolor and gouache paintings and etchings in Britain and America. Her main venue remained the Royal Scottish Academy, where she exhibited from 1894 to 1965. She was also known for her illustrations of fairy stories and romantic subjects. Flowers were important in her artistry. Her artwork has brought a high reported price of over $27,000.00.
