About the Artist:
Pamela is an irrepressible dedicated conservationist and passionate floral artist. She was exposed to the mysteries of nature early in childhood in the U.K. and Quebec. Faerie’s magically pop themselves into her botanical watercolour works. This style of watercolour painting harkens back to the Victorian Arts and Crafts movement thus evoking a sense of innocence, peace and calm.

Pamela got hooked on native flora when she became one of the founding directors of the Canadian Wildflower Society served on their board for ten years. She also created their original logo.
