Hi, I’m Pam – an artist and ardent hand-crafter sharing my passion for creative endeavors. I help others discover, trust and express themselves creatively by sharing my experiences and knowledge that helped me chart my own path to live a more conscious, creative life.
Art and crafting by hand have been at the center of my life for as long as I can remember. I can remember the first time it occurred to me (at age 8) that paper was not just for drawing – it could be folded, cut, curled and pieced to make 3 dimensional objects. I no longer just drew my art homework, I began sculpted them.
I received a B.A. in Fine Arts from Mercer University and worked as a graphic designer and art director for 25+ years ending with a freelance career for the last 15. I also spent time teaching art at an inner city high school. Teaching was such a gift – I believe my students taught me more than I did them.
I try to spend a few weeks out of each year taking workshops and classes. Two of my favorites places are Savannah College of Art and Design and John Campbell Folk School in North Carolina (everyone should go there at least once in their lifetime). It is in those places and at home my love for creating and making what matters continues.
Creativity springs from the yearning to be the fullness of who you are.– Ram Dass
