Current Artists-in-Residence

The objective of Pamela's work is to represent the human experience through the painting of the figure. Her style is a form of portraiture that represents life experiences and emotions that are real but are not visible to the physical eye. She seeks expression of that in life which is only felt. What goes on in the heart and mind is where the real transformations in life take place, and therein lies the place that She strives to give visual representation to, through the paintings. 

She attended BYU where she graduated in 2001, with a BFA. She currently resides in Utah, where she and her (also) artist husband, are raising six children.
