Pamela Wachtler received a BFA from Moore College of Art and Design, Philadelphia, PA in 1972. She has been a resident of â€œCascadiaâ€ since 1977. After a 25 year career as a commercial designer and illustrator she has focused full-time on fine art. Wachtlerâ€™s understanding of the silvery gray skies and waters of the Northwest are that which gives her paintings a warm and enveloping feeling. The impressionistic qualities of this detailed and delicate artwork reflect the tradition of â€œThe Philadelphia Tenâ€, a group of painters educated in the early 1900â€™s at Moore and the Pa Academy of Fine Arts. Her work has been described by critics as being â€œmagical and mysterious within a strong com-positional framework and rich paletteâ€. Adding monotype printmaking as a new for of artistic expression, Pamela delivers a sublime rendering of the Northwest landscape.
