In her artistic practice, Pam explores nature. Her subjects are landscapes, wildlife, and the ocean. She goes beyond realism and provides a unique vision of her natural subjects that deepens the connection between the viewer and the natural world. Her distinctive style is colorful, highly textured, and semi-abstract, but the natural forms can still be identified. She works in water media -- both acrylics and watercolor, often in the same painting.

Pam currently splits her time between Ashland and Bandon, Oregon. Although she had a scholarship to attend art school when she was young, she went into academia instead. After a career as a social science professor at Stanford and the University of Texas-Austin, Pam turned back to her first love and has been painting full-time ever since. She educated herself by taking many classes and workshops at art schools like Oregon College of Arts and Crafts and Scottsdale Art School and did intensive study with well-known water media artists.

She was fortunate to have been selected as artist-in-residence at three National Parks: Lassen (CA), Glacier (MT), and Lake Clark (AK), and continues to be inspired by her time there. She is a signature member of Artists for Conservation and donates art proceeds to conservation causes. She has received several private and two important public commissions: to produce the 2019 Britt Festival playbill cover and poster art, and to design and paint a native plant mural for the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Southern Oregon University. Her work is held in many private and public collections, including the National Park Service.

Pam has had her work shown as part of many juried one-person and group exhibitions and has won many awards for her art. She has been on TV and radio, and her paintings have been used in literary journals, as well as book and catalog covers.
