ABOUT THE ARTIST                           


Pam lives in the small rural town of Turney Missouri. She

 has been a high school art and photography teacher for 28 years. 

 She began doing pet portraits and has enjoyed it thoroughly! Her first portrait was

 of a dog named Muttley, and it was commissioned to be published in a children's

 book. Since then she has focused on family pet portraits.  Pam also enjoys raising

Golden Retrievers. She works with her Golden's in hunt tests, obedience, and agility.

Her dogs are a special part of her family.

What she enjoys the most as an artist, is the ability to take a valued family

member, and create a lasting memory, by capturing what makes that pet special in

every detail of the portrait. She especially loves the realism and detail that are

possible when working with pastels.
