PAM SIMS- is an acrylic and watercolor artist. Her acrylic painting style is impressonist but she also paints in the abstract. When she wants to work in a more realistic style of painting she turns to her watercolors, painting botanicals and wildlife because of the tremendous detail that watercolor provides to her work. Pam started painting about 3 years ago after taking an online course on a whim. Her now friend, Cindy Wider from Australia gave her the tools to pursue this new found passion for painting. Cindy taught her how to draw using graphite and colored pencils which she finds invaluable. This gave her the catalyst to want to keep learning. Online courses made it possible for her to learn to paint botanical and wildlife from artists in England. Acrylics always seemed too difficult to work with but she wanted to develop skills so again she found courses to take and learned to paint acrylics with the palette knife. She loves the freedom on using various methods that are at her disposal for creating art. Nothing is off the table! Pam paints with a purpose, creating art as a way to help in the fight against human trafficking. She is passionate about educating others about this worldwide issue. She sells her art and gives a portion to this cause. She believes in “changing lives one painting at a time”.
