Zoe Cameron studied art at Maidenhead College (1975-7) and Gloucestershire College of Art & Design, Cheltenham (1977-80). In Cornwall she lectured at the Falmouth School of Art, continuing the exhibiting she had begun with the Cheltenham Group at the Cheltenham Art Gallery. She also showed work at Cirencester.
In St Ives she had solo shows at the Salthouse Gallery, and joined the NSA (remains a member 2009), showing work regularly at NAG. Her work has also been exhibited at the Rainyday Gallery, Penzance. Cameron's easily recognisable paintings are evocative of the human condition in all its various manifestations, offered with wit and political savvy. She often depicts herself or the face that 'haunts' her.
Cameron's highly acclaimed interpretations of the 'Stations of the Cross' were on view in 2013 in Truro Cathedral.
In October 2016 an enormous painting by Cameron depicting the vision of St Michael was unveiled at All Saints Church in Marazion. The commission, which includes 12 additional smaller images on the theme of pilgrimage, took three years to complete.
