About Pam Carter
Pam Carter was born in Tanzania, East Africa. Her Scottish father and Austrian mother came to Glasgow when she was aged thirteen. Pam gained a degree at Glasgow School of Art and has lectured for many years in Schools and Colleges including lecturing at Falkirk College. She has gone on to receive various awards for her work including the Visual Arts Scotland Award, been featured in many publications (such as Living Magazine and Internation Artist magazine) over the years and even appeared in BBC programmes. Pam's artwork is part of numerous private and public collections inlcuding those of the Royal Bank of Scotland and the University of Liverpool.
Pam is inspired by the dramatic landscapes and coastline of Scotland, and the way the light (and undoubtedly the weather) is constantly changing and affecting the colours in her view. "I am equally inspired by the changing light sequences of the Western Isles and the dramatic view points of the Eastern coastline. I work predominantly in oil".
It's not just the beauty and drama of the Scotland landscapes that inspires Pam, there is something spiritual at work here too. She describes that moment, while being on an empty beach, alone with your thoughts and experiencing the natural elements around you as something that can touch your soul. It's stimulating, as well as being pleasing to the eye. This is the essence that Pam works into her paintings. She takes time to consider the composition, light and colour and gradually builds up each work to recreate that effect and the feeling as if you were out there in the landscape itself.
