"I'm known for my abstract female figures, but explore other subjects. Solitude, inner, timeless beauty is the essence behind all my work."
pamhamiltonart.com | Instargram: @pamhamilton.art ABOUT MY ART: With varying degrees of abstraction, I paint abstract figures with the underlying essence of silence and solitude – essential moments in life. The surface of the painting is critical and I spend time with the texture and colors. Embracing the unexpected, layers are built up, wiped off, and painted over. My appreciation for...
... things aging and well-worn shows through in the hints of cracking paint and textured surfaces that evolve as I work.
ABOUT ME: I grew up in Springfield, Illinois riding my bike and playing kick-the-can, when everything was groovy. The coloring book was my first canvas. Somewhere in the middle of college, I put down my crayons and brushes to study graphic design. After a successful design career, and the addition of a husband and two kids, I’m back to brushes and canvas. It’s not a glamorous life – toting around paintings in the back of a minivan – but you could still say I’m the luckiest girl in the world! I get to do what I love with full support of a cool family. My life is back to groovy.
