Local Abstract Artist "Pamela Beer"
Pam grew up as a creative personality coming from a life that demanded more of a focus on survival than the expression of her creativity.
Each feeling of excitement, burst of pleasure, or dreams of laughter were squelched by the need to navigate through the challenges of being raised rural and poor along with the challenges stemming from that environment.
Through sheer determination and a long career in technology, she finally burst onto the art scene in 2013 with a renewed spirit to make things that brought joy and completeness, not only for herself but to bring uplifting moments to others.
Each work takes many weeks to complete and begins with several layers of an oil paint and cold wax mixture applied with squeegees onto wood cradled panels. More layering and subsequent colors are applied with soft brayers for an effect that is simultaneously bold and subtle.
Her designs often begin chaotic and stormy only to end up in a very joyful dance that emanates from each work.
Life creates her work and she makes whatever resinates in the current.
