Artists Statement: Pamela Colton Thomas’s father was an artist. She had the good fortune of learning from an early age from him how to take in the beauty around her and express it in some form. Originally, drawing in pen and ink, and charcoal, she experimented in black and white, working with shadows to light and studying the simple elegance of linework. For Pamela, art was always a process. Her true expression came to her when she arrived on the Islands 40 years ago. She began to work in bright and vivid hues, caught up in the explosion of light and color as it expresses itself naturally on this amazing island where she lives.
