Svetlana Cameron (b. 1978) is a Russian-born British portrait artist dedicated to the revival of traditional fine art. Trained in the methods of Old Masters in the private atelier system, she specialises in portraiture in the style of classical realism. Svetlana is based in the Isle of Man (British Isles) where she works from her studio in Braddan. A sought-after portrait painter, she travels internationally to exhibit and meet her sitters.

Svetlana Cameron paints in the traditional Flemish technique, beginning her work with a grisaille under-painting followed by multiple layers of opaque over-painting and rich colour glazes. It allows the artist to create depth, luminosity of colour and level of detail which is not possible to achieve by using modern direct painting methods.

For portrait drawings Svetlana Cameron has developed her own mixed-media technique which won accolades from critics around the world and received awards in international competitions in Great Britain, USA and Russia. She is recognised as Master of Pastel by the French magazine "Pratique des Arts" and the American "Pastel Journal", which included her name in the Top 40 and Top 100 lists of international pastel artists respectively.

Svetlana's portraits of Speakers of the Isle of Man Parliament are included in the UK National Collection of Oil Paintings and are featured on the BBC Your Paintings website.

In 2013 Svetlana Cameron was recognised as one of Britain's leading drawing artists. She became a member of the Society of Graphic Fine Art (UK), the British national drawing society with just over 100 members elected on merit.
