PAMELA STODDART One could say I work with both the left and right sides of the brain. Educated with a math/science background, my career path led me to a more artistic endeavor in the world of marketing for a NY fashion company. I always took art classes in conjunction with my math/science classes because I needed that balance. I continue to take classes for inspiration and direction. Always a painter from a young age, I am inspired by objects of the world around. Everything I see, I want to paint in an abstract way. Some days it's linear and some days it's circular and fluid. I see things analytically and portray them creatively. I am drawn to bright colors and items that evoke happiness. Flowers seem to be a big draw for me. I'm not a gardener but I love to photograph flowers then paint them. I often change the colors or change the proportions making the images abstract. I work on both canvas and paper. I like to start with a painting then magnify sections of it to produce a series or change up the color to create change resulting in a series. I'm drawn to both fluid objects and linear objects, chemical structures and close up flowers. â€‹It's always evolving.
