BIO

For many years, Pamela's primary interest was plein air painting of the landscape. Locally, she's painted the Ashland Town Forest, Martha’s Vineyard and Falmouth Massachusetts landscapes. Travels to Europe produced several series of paintings of landscapes of England, Wales, Ireland, France, and Italy. In the past few years, Pamela has explored interpretive expression of concepts working in mixed media. Her recent work has been an exploration of the mechanisms of healing at a cellular level as well as a spiritual, psychological and emotional one. Currently she is working on a series of paintings addressing environmental issues of concern, particularly relating to protecting our oceans and shore habitats.

 

Climate change will bring forth permanent alterations in our environment. I feel a great responsibility to convey the message that we, as human beings in the 21st century, must research and sustain our environment. It is my fervent hope to enlighten people that treating and managing the human assault on our earth’s natural resources will ultimately heal us. Images can promote healing by creating a visual experience. We can be reminded of the beauty we inherited. We can heal, protect and preserve our environment, thereby healing, protecting and preserving ourselves.
