Loren's Lily, watercolor and ink on paper, 9" x 12", 2015

Pam tells us about herself:

"Growing up in Colorado and now living in Iowa, art in one form or another has always been a part of who I am.  One of my greatest challenges was finding the time to devote myself fully enough to further develop my abilities.  As so often is the case, early aspirations give way to a career and raising a growing family with all the joy and love that brings.  Now with my family raised I find myself having the time to get back to my first love.  I feel like I have come full circle and recently re-engaged the watercolor media that I enjoyed so long ago."

Pam tells us about her work:

"I consider myself a Contemporary Realist artist and am fascinated by the intricate detail offered by the sheer beauty of nature that surrounds us.  Through the medium of watercolor, my tightly rendered artwork is an attempt to capture the intensely fascinating detail offered to us.  Flowers in particular are an important part of my watercolor passion.  Have you ever stopped to really take in the amazing detail offered in a flower garden?  It seems the closer you look, the more you see.  It's my hope to capture those images in a way that allows you the opportunity to enjoy that incredible array with me."
