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.
