About the artist:
Pamela is an irrepressible dedicated conservationist and passionate floral artist. She was exposed to the mysteries of nature early in childhood in the U.K. and Quebec. Faerie’s magically pop themselves into her botanical watercolour works. This style of watercolour painting harkens back to the Victorian Arts and Crafts movement thus evoking a sense of innocence, peace and calm.
She served as Chair, for five years for a multicultural group in Toronto. She was one of the first members and Chair of the Richmond Hill Group of Arts and created their original logo. Pamela got hooked on native flora when she became one of the founding directors of the Canadian Wildflower Society served on their board for ten years. She also created their original logo. Pamela has been a part of the Lake Scugog StudioTour for the past fifteen years. Pamela is past V.P of the Scugog Council for the Arts for the last six years and curator of the gallery space. She also served as V.P. of the Scugog Public Arts Acquisition board. Since its inception Pamela has been deeply involved with the Mayor of Port Perry’s Gala Fundraising Dinner for the Arts. Including her art work she has raised a total of $33,000.00 for the Steven Lewis Foundation.
