Pamela Caughey

I am moved by the abstraction of imagery, ideas and concepts. The process of creating art is one that invites experimentation, problem-solving, and attacking an idea or concept from many angles. A new discovery is invigorations, but must be scrutinized, challenged and pushed in multiple directions before it can be used successfully and executed with conviction. It is the process of learning, a willingness to make mistakes, critical analysis and rarely being satisfied that keeps me coming back to my studio. - Pamela Caughey
