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.
