Pamela Shearer

Pamela has a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Fine Art and Education. When home raising her family she also graduated from the Famous Artist School through correspondence, one of her instructors being Norman Rockwell.

She is retired after teaching and corporate careers of thirty years and has become a successful watercolorist; now working also in collage and oils. She prefers old fashioned linseed oil and turpentine to the more modern products because the smell of oil and turpentine takes her back in history. “At that time I feel like I have always been a painter.”
Pamela infuses affirmations into all of her work. Thoughtful meditation of “healing,” “joy,” “light” and “courage” have been consciously put into each piece. This seems to guide her paintings to just the person who needs them. She often finds out later why a collector was drawn to her piece.

Pamela’s love of color and patterns welcome eyes of appreciation. When she paints she allows the free flow of color to surprise us with its beautiful effects.

Her paintings seem to be gentle and joyful, bringing smiles to people. She loves to see someone notice the detail and step closer to look carefully at the tiny strokes and color changes.

Pamela is a member of the Fountain Hills Art League, the Scottsdale Artists League and has been juried into the Arizona Art Alliance.
