Donald Stewart Cameron was born in Aberdeen, Scotland in 1866. He studied art at South Kensington, London, and at the Scottish Educational department. He emigrated to Victoria, where he was living in 1941.

He exhibited artwork with the Island Arts & Crafts Society from 1911 to 1936. Harper notes that he was a painter in oil, watercolour, and pastel, exhibiting in Victoria and Vancouver.

In 1932 Cameron was a signatory to an agreement to boycott the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa for their exhibition and purchase policies related to Canadian artists. He was noted as being a Victoria artist.

B.C. Vital Statistics on-line records that a Donald Stewart Cameron died in Burnaby on February 19 1947 at the age of 80, this is probably the same person.
