Pam McDonnell


It all started...

as a child growing up in north Georgia with a hardworking mother, a dirt road, horses and lots of time alone.  I was forced into a world of imagination. The woods taught me to see, explore my boredom and create without judgement or critique.

Now, I make out of a need to understand the world as I currently experience it and to connect to others.  I am constantly exploring new images as a side effect of boring easily but I balance this fickleness with a passion to understand oil painting ever more deeply.  I have been committed to color recently and the imagery has begun abstracting itself as the need to know "what"  I am painting becomes less important.
