After 20 some-odd years of managing and owning Pam’s Place Hair Salon, Pam stepped down in search of bigger and better. Her years of artistically designing hairstyles for beautiful men and women satisfied her need to create art, but just not quite. She has spent the years since taking class after class in Drawing, and Painting. No formal degree but she's no less an artist.

Pam's lifelong desire to create art really took shape after she became a Certified Zentangle Teacher (CZT 27 2017). Zentangle is a process of creating art using one stroke at a time. Zentangle can be done by anyone who can hold a pen. The step-by-step instructions guarantee success and confidence to all who give it a try. Zentangle gave her the confidence to illustrate and write her first book in 2018 based on her love of butterflies and nature in general. Her book The Lonely Lonely Butterfly, Ebony B Swallowtail can be found on Amazon. E B Swallowtail is a child’s story and a family butterfly guide all in one.

Folks from all over the country have commissioned her to do pet and people portraits. Portraits can be done in Charcoal, Watercolor, and/or Colored Pencil. Pam is known for her realistic capturing of the finest details. But she can also be loose and playful in her paintings.

She still gives Zentangle classes and just loves to help people release their own inner artists. Currently Vice President of Art Guild NE, Co-President of AOS CT, and owner/operator of Fluttering Wings Studio. She is active on many art committees and attends as many art shows as possible. Meet her at the Putnam CT Art Show in June and Art in the Park in September

Fluttering Wings Studio is part of Pam's Butterfly Sanctuary.  For years she raised butterflies for Butterfly Pavilions and during that time she perfected a method of creating jewelry using the naturally deceased butterfly wings. 

She grew up with a sewing Mother who taught her the art of sewing with precision. She thanks her Mom for that as she sews up her art pieces. Fabric design is one of the new crafts in her arsenal of art skills.



Artist Statement:

I was born naturally creative. As a child I made my Barbie doll clothes and styled their hair in up-dos I used found clay to build rooms and furniture for them. I crushed leaves and petals to make my own “paint” to crudely paint on everything (except the walls).

I hold a degree in self-made woman artist. My creative journey has been a long and winding road. I thank my mother for her insistence on perfection though it's been a blessing and a curse. When I take up a new modality I seek perfection.

One day I decided to try Zentangle the form of art that uses only one stroke at a time and guaranteed success to anyone who tried this art form. Well not only did I have success with it I took the Teaching Class and became certified. But, that was not enough I wanted to make ART. Zentangle gave me the confidence to attempt to draw and paint as you will see in the attached images. I love creating. Right now I'm making jewelry and that satisfies my urge to solve puzzles. I'm making fabric art from hundreds of brand-new silk neckties. I make pocketbooks and more with them as well as wall art. This is fun for me. Watercolor and Charcoal still serve the purpose of exciting the artist in me. My farm located in Pomfret CT is a dedicated Butterfly Sanctuary so I never run out of inspiration.
