PAMELA KAY R.W.S., R.B.A., R.C.A., N.E.A.C.
Pamela was born in 1939 and studied at both the Royal College of Art and Canterbury College of Art. She originally worked as a textile designer but eventually decided to paint full time.
Pamela Kay works in both watercolour and oils. Her subject matter ranges from still life, flowers, interiors and gardens to watercolours of her travels. This can be seen in two books published about her work and working methods: ‘The Art of Pamela Kay’ by Michael Spender and ‘Gouache - A Personal View’ by Pamela Kay. APV films has produced a DVD entitled ‘Aspects of Flower Painting in Oils’, showing Pamela at work.
Pamela is one of Britain’s foremost painters of flowers and still life. Inspired by Dutch, French and Spanish Masters of the 17th and 18th Centuries, her paintings reflect her interest in the beauty of humble everyday objects and their unassuming nature.
Pamela has painted in Hong Kong, Vietnam, Thailand, India, Sri Lanka, the Yemen, the Middle East, the Mediterranean and the Baltic Countries. Her work is in Royal and International collections and she is a regular exhibitor at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, and other galleries both here and abroad.
