Pamela Ann Lee

Artist's Profile

 I started drawing at the age of five, and began art lessons at the Fine Arts Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado in middle school.  I was notorious for making doodles all over my study notes in class all through my school years!  In high school, my geometry teacher commented, (upon seeing a hard-edged geometric abstract painting I was working on in art class), "I can't understand how you can draw a perfect circle free-hand on a canvas, and at the same time have the trouble you do in my geometry class!" 

I emphasized in sculpture as a Studio Art major in college and most of my work was in ceramic.  My favorite subject matter was animals of all types, but my professors wanted abstract and contemporary work.  I remained adept at satisfying myself and them also by producing very creative, stylized and sometimes abstract creatures.  I feel this improved my artistic endeavors, making it possible to work in many mediums and styles successfully. 

After I finished school,  I was offered a job in a new hospital, setting up the in-patient pharmacy and working as a technician.  Pharmacy became my bread and butter, and I enjoyed the challenge of working in a hospital and constantly learning new technical knowledge while helping others. 

I never stopped being an artist, however, and found many avenues to free-lance, designing logos and drawing newspaper ads for local businesses.  I purchased a kiln and began to produce some of my favorite pieces, a few of which I still own.  Others were sold through local shops.  I didn’t have the luxury of Internet advertising then!  

 An admirer once told me my sculptures reminded her of some of the bronze pieces at Brook Green Gardens in Pawley’s Island, South Carolina!  Indeed, I frequented the gardens whenever I could, since I lived in the area, and I was indeed influenced by many of America's most famous artists!  My favorite American sculptors being Anna Hyatt Huntington and Charles M. Russell.  I imagined that someday I would produce a bronze and donate it to be placed in a nook somewhere in those lovely gardens!  Be sure to visit Brookgreen gardens if you are ever at or near Pawley’s Island, South Carolina.  You won’t be disappointed! 

After I purchased a computer and my discovery of eBay, I decided to try polymer clay for smaller and easier to ship pieces. Being a dog lover I decided to sculpt some of my favorite toy breeds and was delighted to find that they were snatched up in auctions on eBay, since then I have shipped them to customers all over the world!  I gradually switched to an epoxy sculpting medium which I like even better than the polymer because of it’s durability.  It has allowed me to sculpt even larger pieces, and I am modeling several of these to be cast in limited editions in 2011-2012. 

One might ask why am I selling on Image Kind and Café Press since these sites sells mostly two-dimensional work?  I would answer that a sculptor should be able to construct his or her ideas in two-dimensions before the sculpted form, and I have been a painter and designer for many years too!  Even the photographs I take of my own sculptures are wonderful to apply to items found on this and other websites, so I am happy to advertise myself in every way I can. 

It was my honor to be contacted by Hoflin Publishing Company in 2010, to be the featured artist for their Papillon Yearly Annual.  I love and keep three adorable Papillons, and they are one of my favorite breeds!  Please check out their website at www.hoflin.com and order your favorite breed publication now! 

I also own and love a beautiful solid black Tennessee Walking Horse, and it is his striking silhouette that I name my store, “BLACK HORSE STUDIO” after.  I hope you like the products you find in my shop, and they help to brighten your day!  I also take orders for commissioned work of all kinds.  From portraits to business logos, two-dimensional and three!  Also check out additional works on my portfolio at www.ebsqart.com/seventhheavenclay
