Pamela has been creating art since she was able to hold a crayon. Possessing an eye for realism early on in her training, she has developed a sensitivity for her subjects.  She studied fine art and graphic design at Northern Arizona University and received her Bachelor’s in Art with a Graphic Design emphasis from California State University, Long Beach. A marketing communications professional for over 25 years, specializing in graphic design, her true love is portraiture. Pamela has studied the techniques of the masters (Titian, Vermeer, DaVinci), contemporaries such as Daniel Greene and John Sanden, and with nationally acclaimed artists at the Scottsdale Artists School including private tutelage of renowned portraitist, Chris Saper of Phoenix. 

Pamela's work resides in nearly 100 private collections, is a member of the Portrait Society of America, Tempe Artists Guild, and is a Juried Artist of the Arizona Art Alliance.  Each commission is welcomed with enthusiasm, continuing to perfect her technique for “knowledge earned is rewarded with pride of accomplishment”.  Pamela believes life is but a process of learning and growing; if you are not doing so, you are not living.
