Residing in France for 23 years with her husband and son, she earned her MFA from the Ecole Supérieure d’Art d’ Aix en Provence, then studied choreography and education at IUFM Blois. Pamela’s work veered to collaborative large-scale community projects including: a traveling multi-sensory museum, costume and set design for a contemporary circus, public engagement professor for international programs, and residencies in over 100 schools where she created ephemeral and permanent public works of art with schools and their communities. Returning to Maine 8 years ago, Pamela was honored to receive the Maine Visual Arts Fellowship, a Kindling Fund Grant, and two Artist Project Grants from the Maine Arts Commission.
