Pamela Wilson was born in Holland in 1946. Her
father was Dutch but her mother was English and, as a child, she
made frequent visits to her grandparents. It was perhaps these
visits that sowed the seeds of what has proved to be an enduring
affection for the English countryside. Pamela was educated in
Holland and graduated from the Royal Academy of Art and Design in
the Hague. In her early twenties she married an English engineer
and moved to Cheshire where her two sons were born. For several
years Pamela taught art and craft at a school for deaf children
in Cheshire. On moving to Dorset she retained her art and craft
links with product designs for a local manufacturer. Subsequently
taking up a part-time teaching post in Adult Education, these
classes still occupy a considerable part of her time. Her wide
range of teaching skills include art in many forms, detailed
embroidery, silk painting and delicate crochet work.
Pamela, while greatly admiring traditional skills, has always wanted to experiment. To this end she has made a substantial contribution to the development of "Textile Art", specialising in landscape pictures combining embroidery, silk painting and other artistic techniques. This combination of skills has brought her national recognition and acclaim through specialist national publications.
For some years, Pamela has been increasingly troubled with arthritis and has now begun to concentrate solely on watercolour painting. Pamela loves to work in great detail and has an incredible way of showing light and texture. Her work is mostly of the countryside or of the interaction of urban life with nature. Whatever she paints, there is always this feeling of sunshine and her love of life pouring from every stroke of her brush.
Pamelas paintings are already being greatly sought after by people from around the world and we can only hope that she continues painting as long as possible.
