ABOUT PAMELA HAMILTON
Pamela Hamilton attended Chicago's School of the Art Institute, then later continued her education studying Graphic Design. She began a career in print and publishing, eventually becoming the Art Director for Country Sampler Magazine.

As her children grew up and started lives of their own, Pam enrolled in a series of oil pastel classes. One medium lead to another, and she discovered soft pastels. It was then that Pam decided to end her career and fully immerse herself in her artistic pursuits.

Much of Pamela Hamilton's work--from still lifes to landscapes--is done using pastels. She stated, "I love the immediacy and flexibility of this medium--the vibrancy, rich tone, texture, paint-like quality and portability. I draw inspiration from my love of color, form and light."

Since 2011, Pam has participated in more than 80 exhibits, including numerous juried fine art fairs and solo shows, and has earned four "Best in Show" titles and numerous awards in other categories. She is represented by Edgewood Orchard Galleries in Fish Creek, WI.


Pamela is a Signature Member of the Pastel Society of America.
