Pamela Reid – Artist statement
A passion can be sublimated, postponed, pushed down and neglected. But eventually it demands to be recognised and dealt with. For Pamela Reid, hers is such a story. A fervour for art and photography from childhood took back seat as she pursued a career in advertising (both here and inUK), then for over 20 years in the entertainment industry.
Pamela’s love of both performance and visual arts, along with an ability to visualise and comprehend design and composition, helped in her day job, but it is her ardour for art that is the focus these days.
Much of Pamela’s art comes from the framework of life drawing, those creative responses to form, volume and tonal qualities. She works in a variety of mediums: pastel, charcoal, Ink & watercolour, acrylic, collage and printmaking techniques. “There’s such individuality in what impresses us,” explains Pamela. “I can’t restrict myself to a single medium. Rather, I work with whatever feels right. I experiment and the artworks evolve.”
