About the Artist: Pam Patterson
Pamela Patterson is a native Floridian painting in oil and watercolor. Music was Pamela’s first artistic outlet. After graduating from Florida State University, she began a career as a music educator in Virginia. Later she and her husband moved to Palm City to raise a family.
Her interest in integrating the arts led Pamela to a drawing class and serendipitous meeting with Caesar Cirigliano, who studied under George Groz and John Sloane of the Ashcan School. Through Mr. Cirigliano’s mentoring, Pamela discovered the magic of light and limited palette in her portraits and landscapes.
Seascapes are a natural subject for her and childhood memories of the Florida Panhandle are woven into her paintings. The beauty of Martin County is the basis of much of her work.
Pamela’s watercolors and oils have been recognized in many juried shows and can be found in both private and corporate collections.
She has a recent and growing interest in sculpture. The garden setting of her home has been the backdrop for larger pieces and children of friends have inspired her smaller sculptures.
She maintains a studio in Palm City where she gives lessons to both adults and children and hosts Treasure Coast Art Parties.
