Pamela is interested in the experimental qualities of watercolour and mixed media in paintings.

She enjoys the freedom and spontaneity that watercolour and gouache can produce, and has
also explored the versatility and vibrancy of acrylic paints. Strong colour combinations are used,
as are unusual techniques such as encaustic and hot wax, various forms of resist and printing
techniques are incorporated into her paintings. Collage textures using handmade papers, fabrics,
found objects and metallic surfaces are often integrated into her paintings as well.

Drawing is always an important element in all her paintings, she often uses unusual implements
such as sticks, combs, brushes, sponges rags and knives.
