Listed in the 1841 Census for Kenwyn, Truro, as a 20 year old Artist living at Ferris Town and born in the County. Wood notes him as a London painter of historical and literary subjects some years later, when he exhibited at RA, BI and elsewhere.
A long-time house painter and decorator with a difference, Callow, honing his considerable skills on life-size buildings in London and elsewhere (including a 2-year stint working on No 10, Downing Street), developed his architectural artistry by turning to landscape, cityscape and fascias in miniature. The miniature fascias are of buildings, barns, houses of international design including Shaker houses, New England and Mid-West American barns, as well as historic Bath frontages (Royal Crescent) and paintings of the Thames landscapes at evening and at dawn.
His pen, charcoal and pencil drawings are free-forms of geometric and technological features which ask complex questions of the viewer.
In 2007, Callow collaborated on the construction and decorative execution of the Dwellings Bookcase, working with the author Melissa HARDIE to create an installation work for the 'Exquisite Trove' exhibition at NAG (July-October, 2010). His studio is located in Redruth, Cornwall.
A painter of semi-abstract works on canvas, Susan Camburn works from a studio in Falmouth.
Working in St Ives from 1913-14, Cameron lived with his wife at Ar Lyn, Lelant. Though mentioned in Whybrow as visiting between 1901-10 (implying some time spent in the area) and in the St Ives Times, he is not listed in the usual major listings of artists, so no additional information is available at present.
