I started painting shoe portraits and got a few requests for pointe shoes, this is one. The idea behind all of my shoe portraits are the women and their colorful stories. Each has tattoos on their legs reflecting the pattern of their shoes. Even the skirt in Tiny Dancer has reflections of the symbols and tattoos under the sheer fabric (made by multiple glazing layers of paint).

Getting to Know Pamela

Pamela’s lively body of abstract paintings tangibly exudes a cheeky happiness. Forms and colors dance across her wood panels. Repeated shapes create a mysterious yet delightful visual language. Texture is important to the artist as well. “The scratches and scrapes along the journey of making a piece of my artwork reveal so much depth and beauty,” says Pamela. When an artwork is finished, Pamela seals the image with gel and a wax coating, emulating the texture of encaustic artwork. She works out of her home studio accompanied by her two Havanese dogs.
