Artist Interview: Pamela Edevold
“You warm up, just like you would an instrument, and then you get going... and I paint until I just can’t see anymore.” Pamela Edevold
Self-taught portrait artist Pamela Edevold began her journey as a profesisonal portrait artist when she was eighteen years old. Sketching and selling portraits in the park evolved into commission work and eventually she would create portraits from photographs sent to her in the mail. Colored pencils were her medium of choice for more than 20 years. After a brief hiatus from portrait work, she returned to her easel with a curiosity to experience other mediums. Acrylics have become her new passion. Incorporating this new medium into her portraits has inspired experimentation and a new wonder into her works.
In this segment of Area Voices, Pamela discusses her artistic journey, processes and dream project.
