I am an Artist, Writer, Wife and Mother. I have also been a film and tv producer, web personality, t-shirt snark artist and pop culture commentator. I created Free Katie and you can read more about it here
. I am also known as "kit" who ran the Project Greenlight web community and Co-Produced the first season of the Project Greenlight TV show. Read more about it here.
On June 1, 2010 I started this blog committing to 365 days of creating art, writing and raising kids. I made it the full year, posting every day, and learned a great deal about myself and that a family can thrive through artistic expression.
I believe in the magic of the internet and have been making friends online for 20 years. I am passionate about technology as a way to connect to our humanity. My work as an emerging artist is only possible because of this place and the people I know here.
Spring 2013 I created an online event, "Jerry Saltz PERSONALLY Invited Me to Hell and I’m Going!" based on feedback from famed art critic Jerry Saltz. It culminated in a successful online auction and this feedback from the man himself,
Sheila Cameron did magnificently…She accepted my challenge (advice) and her work got better. Much better. I do not think that she understood what I meant, however, by the idea that if she did what I asked we’d see one another in hell. When I say “See you in hell” I mean that all creative people court chaos and the unknown, and that is a form of hell.
A very very good place…
I knew you had it in you….

How can I purchase or see your work?
There are three places online I sell my work. My Etsy Store, Ebay (my username is hollywoodkit) and Cafe Press. Stop by and see what is for sale.
If you would like to see my work in person, you can find it at Art Works Gallery in Grass Valley, CA, Neva Co in Nevada City, CA and Give Me Some Sugar in Chicago, ILL. I also participate in various fine art shows that I update on my blog.
If there is a particular piece you are interested in and can't find in any of my stores, contact me directly at sheilacameron at me dot com.
I accept paypal and will work with you on international shipping.
Do you mind if I share my art, music, writing?
No, please do. You can post a reply on my blog or share it on my facebook page or message boards. I don't have any specific rules set up on that but I love seeing what other artists are creating, especially if they are also parents. Just don't be a jerk about it. We've been on the internet long enough to know what being a jerk on the internet looks like.
Can I use your artwork for my blog, avatar, site?
Sure, I love sharing my work. It would be great if you let me know and gave me a link back. If you are a big, fancy company who might have some money to pay me, do the right thing or I will call you out and you will look dumb for it. If you are a blogger who wants some art, help yourself but link back with proper credit.
Can I Pin It?
Love getting pinned! Pin away!
