Pam lives in the Gold Country of California with her husband David. The rolling hills and historic small towns of the area have been an inspiration in her art work. Always drawing and doodling as a child, she first started painting in oils as a teenager.
Her love affair with watercolors began when she was lucky enough to study with Dorner Schuler. His use of color and water to create lovely foothill landscapes was eye-opening.
Pam continued watercolor instruction with Martha Wallace, a well known teacher and artist in Murphys.
In 2007, she began studying with Jill Figler, a nationally recognized watercolorist. Pam's passion for all art mediums has benefited her many students over her years as a elementary teacher.
Now retired, she is immersing herself in her art and enjoys networking with other artists.
