Born in East Africa to an Austrian Mother and Scottish Father she came to Glasgow at the age of thirteen. She graduated from Glasgow School of Art in the 70’s and lectured for many years in Further Education Colleges and during that time she became a well known landscape painter.
Currently she paints full time. She has had numerous solo exhibitions throughout Britain and also in the USA and has participated in several group shows including the Royal Scottish Society (RSA), the Royal Glasgow Institute (RGI), Visual Arts Scotland (VAS), and the Paisley Art Institute (PAI). She gained awards from each of the latter three Institutes. She was also featured in two BBC2 programs, Castle in the Country and Landward and recently in 2017 was interviewed on The STV News.
Pam is inspired by the changing light sequences of the Western Isles and the intimate icons of the islands. Her work is instantly recognisable by her use of colour. Pam has a number of themes ranging from dramatic skies with smooth blends of colour to textured beaches and wild grasses. Her brushwork changes as the scene dictates. Some of the paintings have taken on a new palette where the colours have been juxtaposed to create a particular mood. Her studio work allows her to combine all the expression and sensation felt in the field with the more careful considered concepts, composition, structure, colour and tone. Ultimately she uses her skills to picture make creating a maximum visual impact for the onlooker.
