Although Leicestershire born and bred, Pam has been a camp follower to her husband’s career moves for the past 30 years, living in East Africa and South East Asia before going to Dubai for a couple of years. She has been playing around with different mediums for most of her life but until she went to live in Dubai she always felt her work was suppressed and did nothing to represent her personality.  With the constantly changing face of Dubai, and the unabashed way it takes on board everything new, she felt free to abandon her previous style and just let the paint build up on the canvas.  The challenge now she is back in the UK is to keep that sense of freedom.

Abstract painter Pam finds inspiration comes from many sources. Sometimes an old peeling door exactly suggests a composition or colours to try, and other times it is a case of researching for weeks and then thinking deeply  into a subject or idea, before standing in front of a canvas, emptying her head, and beginning. Acrylic is usually the main medium, and she uses a large brush or scraper, and anything else that is within reach, for instance cloths, hands, tissues, print shapes and her own cut “tiles”.  She makes the first mark, moves it around, takes it off and then repeats the process until she is satisfied with the result.  It is then just a case of fine tuning and this is often done with pastels.  She paints in her kitchen and keeps a stetchbook by the TV!
