Pamela is a storyteller and painter of people and landscapes. She has a passion for the Australian bush, social justice and a love of history which is clearly evident in her work.
Her landscapes, people and their stories are brought to life in various media including oils, acrylics, water soluble pencil, charcoal and montage. A talent for visual art was apparent from a young age, however only in recent times has she been able to seriously pursue a childhood dream. She has drawn heavily on her interim life experiences in developing countries and at the community coalface in hospitals and as a community nurse. She is currently studying a Fine Arts degree at UTAS.
Since 2014 Pamela has had seven solo exhibitions and had works in numerous group exhibitions. These include works selected for the Glover Prize 2019, the Mission to Seafarers' Maritime Art Prize 2018, the Bay of Fires Art Prize 2016 and 2017 and as an invited artist at "Executed in Franklin Street" (Indigenous Exhibition) at City Gallery, Melbourne Town Hall.
Her work has recently been exhibited in Melbourne,
Canberra, Tasmania and Sydney, where Pamela was a finalist in the Art Gallery of NSW Sulman Prize, 2012.
Equally important to Pamela is supporting other artists in their endeavours and to this end she has created numerous backdrops, sides and costumes for dance and theatre productions and to this end she coordinates the Poatina Tree Gallery in Tasmania.
She has collaborated with dancers, musicians, authors, film makers and other visual artists.
