Biography

Pam graduated in Fine Art from Kingston College of Art in 1981. After completing her degree Pam exhibited work in various group exhibitions whilst working in art restoration and completing a B.A. in the History of Art in Birkbeck. She worked in public Art and her designs were selected for a mural at the Brixton Leisure Centre, a memorial for still born babies in Plymouth and she was shortlisted for the Tradescant monument in Lambeth. At this time, she started teaching clay portraiture and sculpture in adult education colleges.

In 1985 Pam completed a post-graduate certificate of education in Art and Design at Hornsey College and thereafter taught Art in inner-London secondary schools. Pam was particularly interested in developing the artistic creativity of deaf and special needs children. She delivered art projects in schools for deaf children and published an article on how animation and model-making could aid language development for deaf children. She was also commissioned by Barrington Stoke to write a series of educational books on the basic ideas and techniques of impressionism, post-impressionism, expressionism and surrealism which were published in 2004. She finished her teaching career as Head of Art in a school for dyslexic children in Fulham.

Pam now lives near Deal in Kent and often spends part of the year in France and Spain. She has contributed to group Art exhibitions in the Charente Maritime and is particularly inspired by the varieties of light and landscape. She is a member of South East Artists Group in Kent - https://searts.wordpress.com/

Pam’s work is presently focused on two main areas which are the figure in movement and nature, especially marine life inspired in part by her involvement as a coastal guardian in Kent. Her work explores rhythmic line and vibrant colour. Some of her artistic influences are Henri Matisse, Georgia O’Keefe and Sonia Delaunay. She generally works with watercolour, gouache or acrylic paint but also explores collage, clay sculpture and different types of print-making including stone lithography, drypoint and lino.
