Pam's first collection for StencilGirl® Products is entitled, "Words are not Enough." The collection consists of 2 large 9x12 stencils. L9464 contains twelve symbols grouped together encompassing the thoughts of our organic world while L965 has twenty-eight symbols grouped together to represent an internal and very personal language that only our spirit can comprehend.
Pam's artistic journey has been a winding path, full of unexpected twists and turns. As a creative personality growing up in a world that demanded survival over self-expression, she learned to keep her artistic passions hidden away. It wasn't until she found herself working in a corporate technical role that she rediscovered the joy of visual art, using it as a way to relieve stress and rediscover her true self.
For years, Pam's career demanded more process and analytical activity than creativity, leaving her feeling unfulfilled and disconnected from her artistic spirit. But when her career came to an end, she knew it was time to rebuild and seek spiritual wholeness and wellness.
Painting became her refuge, a way to remove the chaos of life and tease out a sense of hope through beauty and visual rendering.
Pam's journey as an artist has been one of exploration and discovery. She began working in watercolor, then moved to acrylic, and eventually found her true voice in oil and cold wax medium. It wasn't until she embraced abstraction and painting how something feels, rather than how it appears, that her work truly began to blossom.
Each of Pam's abstract works is a journey in itself, beginning with wild, chaotic marks that are eventually tamed by a lovingly constructed story of internal peace and hope. Layers of paint and effort reveal bursts of life with color and calmness, always with just the right tension to keep the work interesting.
Pam's tools of choice are silicone scrapers, squeegees, and soft brayers, which allow her to achieve unique color shifts and create passages of both opacity and transparency. Her custom-made birchwood panels provide the perfect canvas for her work, allowing her to express her innermost stories in a way that is both beautiful and meaningful.
Through her art, Pam seeks to capture the beauty and joy of life, while also exploring the deeper spiritual dimensions of our faith that underlie our existence.
Her work is a testament to the power of creativity to heal, transform, and inspire, and a reminder that even in the midst of chaos and uncertainty, there is always hope.
