Artist Statement of Pamela McMahon

Pamela McMahon lives and works in rural Scotland and her current work has two main styles – collage landscapes and mixed media flower paintings. Both are semi abstract, expressive and colourful.

With the collage landscapes, her aim is to create compelling and beautiful works through the use of bold colour, texture and details that reference the interplay of light and shade and the marks made on the land by man and machinery.

Her floral paintings are executed on heavyweight paper using watercolours, inks and acrylics. These paintings are splashy, colourful and a wee bit wild. Pamela's aim in these works is to capture the spirit, the energy and the vitality of flowers.

Through her work, she hopes to share with others the delight and happiness that she get from her love of the countryside and flower gardens.
