My love of art has been for as long as I can remember! I have dabbled in many mediums over the years and so long as I am creating, I feel a sense of fulfilment.
"The inspiration for my work comes from the smallest parts of the landscape. I am fascinated by the way nature illustrates a condensed lifecycle and reinforces the interconnection of all living things."
Inspired by Winslow Homer, John Singer Sargent, John Turner in her art she is reacting to beauty around her in the mountains, pathways, rivers, skies, lakes and people who are at home there. Seeing the hand and mind of a creative God in the world around her, she is filled with passion to share her interpretation of a dance, a rhythm, a playfulness she sees there.

Harmonious landscapes, playful buildings, whimsical wildlife and trees with personality dominate Pam's canvas. Her acrylic palette is bold and bright. She achieves these results by drawing the initial image then layering her paint; layer upon colourful layer.
"Wessels work reads like a surprisingly beautiful puzzle. Aged trompe-l'oeil surfaces channel circus sideshow or travelling snake-oil salesman or perhaps some wild combination of the two. Photography is continually referenced even though there are no actual photographic images...it is all painted. Clues to personal history abound, but are left open ended and intriguing. The skill of this artist is never in question, although the enigmatic and mysterious quality of the subject matter leaves the viewer wanting to know more."
