Pam Hamilton is an award-winning visual artist. With varying degrees of abstraction, she creates peaceful and meditative paintings. The surface of the canvas is critical, and time is spent with the texture and colors. Embracing the unexpected, layers are built up, wiped off, and painted over. Her appreciation for things aging and well-worn shows through in the hints of cracking paint and textured surfaces that evolve as she works.
She received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Southern Illinois University, specializing in illustration and visual communications. Pam’s work has been the subject of solo exhibitions throughout the Midwest. She has participated in numerous group exhibitions throughout the Midwest and Southeast United States. Her work can be found in private collections, internationally. Pam has received multiple awards and grants for her work. She has curated exhibitions in both Chicago and Knoxville, taught classes, and mentored up-and-coming artists.
