Pamela Jarrett is best known for her works of portraits, still lifes, and vanitas. Her career as an artist started in New York, but her thirst for knowledge and adventure led her overseas. In the early nineties, she studied the Masters in Italy, spending most of her time in Florence. She found it possible to remain in Italy, where she lived as a painter for six years.
Pam, who paints only with oils, was trained to paint from a single light source and never from photographs. She subscribes to a technique that was used before cameras were invented, and believes that the spirit of the subject is best-captured in person.
Pam is available for comnmissions.
