At the age of nine Guy Cambier lost the use of his legs in an accident. He taught himself painting by studying artists he admired, including Watteau and Corot. He moved to Normandy and after 1950 settled in the countryside of Grasse. From 1942 onwards he exhibited in Belgium, then in towns along the Côte d'Azur, the USA and the Salon des Témoins de leur Temps in Paris on the subject of Love amongst others. He was awarded various regional distinctions and notably, in 1957, the Prix de la Jeune Peinture in Paris.
He favoured a scrupulously descriptive technique, painting subjects inspired by the pleasure of living, with a predilection for young women bedecked with garlands. His meticulous manner lent itself to portraits including those of Princess Grace of Monaco, Winston Churchill, Ingrid Bergman, Gérard Philipe and Edward G. Robinson.
