Cameron Sesto

Cameron is an artist and retired Montessori art teacher currently facilitating her meditation and visual expression workshops in her studio and at other venues on the North Shore of Massachusetts.

She lives near the ocean with her artist husband Carl Sesto, and has been involved in the fine arts all her adult life, teaching art to children, and meditation with visual expression to adults.

She holds a Photography degree from the Rochester Institute of Technology and enjoys working in a variety of media that include photography, oil painting, writing and design. Her paintings and digital collages have all originated from charcoal drawings drawn in her meditation and visual expression workshop, Drawing into Creative Wholeness, which she began in 1986.


Ezra Sesto

It all started when…

            she was a little girl. She knew that she was destined to be an artist. Growing up in a creative family (both her parents are artists), photography in particular came naturally to her. She feels comfortable behind the lens of a camera and is constantly finding subjects to photograph. She’s drawn to the dichotomy between ancient and modern and the exquisite decay that results. Being creative is a path towards meditation and peace leading her to her authentic self.

Ezra is a graduate of Rhode Island School of Design and lives in New Jersey with her three children.
