FINE ART BY PAMELA
One of a kind mixed media art available for purchase at the Carmel Artist Association or via private inquiry. View a work sample below.
It all started out with crayons.
I grew up in the quaint town of Sierra Madre California and I am a boomer.
I knew I wanted to be an artist since I was 4 years old. One day my Dad sat down on the floor with me and we colored in my favorite coloring book. He chose purple for the dog and green for the kitty. At first I was distressed but I soon became an adopter of exploring my life through color and art making.
Now I live in the quaint village of Carmel Valley. My small studio is a converted shed. It is a sanctuary for art making.
My early professional art career started with watercolor. Collected shells and feathers dominated my choice of imagery. I moved on to flowers and birds. All were realistically rendered. I always study and read about my subjects. It is a way to more understanding and enjoyment. Learning about crows and owls continue to be part of my practice.
The variety of techniques captured me when studying printmaking at UCSC. I especially found monotype an exciting process. Eventually the owl series took flight. Cloudscapes were equally captivating and showed up in my work, as well.
I continue to explore media. My work has included thread in the form of hand stitching since my first watercolor show at the Pacific Grove Art Center in the 1970’s.
Mixed media is my current passion.
One of my on-going projects is making a French knot with embroidery floss to commemorate those who have died of Covid.
