Pam Weber is a Calgary-based visual artist with her own unique, colourful, and whimsical style. Born in Kitchener-Waterloo, Pam first explored her artistic sensibilities in high school, leading her to a Fine Arts degree at the nearby University of Guelph. Upon graduation and facing the challenges of all young artists to “make a living” Pam delved into graphic arts and silk-screening, opening and successfully running a local business “Oink Ink Production”. After getting married in 1984, Pam moved to the Nation’s Capital, where her painting style evolved further while working in the graphic arts and animation. Soon, with three young scallywags at home, Pam’s style of art evolved into mixed media and collages, featuring strong and vibrant colours with wild animals and urban streetscapes frequently the
preferred subject matter.
A move to Calgary in 1995 brought Pam to a completely new geographical environment, one of the big skies and dramatic scenery. Not one to have been drawn to landscape painting in her past, the undeniable beauty of Alberta’s mountains and prairies once again caused Pam’s art to evolve and begin to focus on the alluring natural environment, but still with her trademark colourful and approachable style.
Today Pam has the pleasure of wandering into her comfortable light-filled studio any day she chooses and dreaming up on canvas what her mind can see, to share her unique perspective of the world for others to enjoy.
