Pamela Wright was born, raised and is currently living in southern Maine. She is retired from a career as a computer specialist and is now devoting a lot of her time to painting. Pam just began her acrylic painting two years ago when a friend encouraged her to take ‘just one class’ she hasn’t stop there. She has had other classes in Portland, Venice Florida and South Portland. Pam spent hours as a young child watching her grandmother paint and now holding a paint brush and looking at the canvas brings back so many wonderful memories for her. She has always been interested in visiting artist studios, galleries and talking to artist about their process and inspiration. Painting the oceans, waves, sky, meadows and especially trees has become her focus and a driving force behind each painting. There is so much to learn with acrylics but she is also looking forward to experimenting with oils and encaustics. That idea of ‘just one class’ has led her in a new direction.
