Pam has art in her blood. Her grandmother was an artist and Pam’s college degree is in Studio Art from the University of Mary Washington in Virginia.
Pam started beading before 2000, making functional jewelry (lanyards for badges and phones) as well as unique necklace designs.
She has learned from national instructors in polymer clay, metal work, bead weaving, and bead embroidery. Her bead creations have won awards in several venues in Virginia and New Mexico.
Pam retired to Rio Rancho, NM in June 2017 and came to Amapola Gallery in March 2018 after four years at Art ala Carte in Occoquan, VA. Many of her pieces feature repurposed vintage items
