Framed original still life oil painting of a vase of roses and a small bowl of strawberries. Signed in the lower left corner by the artist, Pamela Kay.
Pamela Kay is one of Britain’s foremost painters of flowers and still life – working in watercolour and oils, and occasionally pastels.
Pamela Kay was born on the Isle of Sheppey, Kent. She studied at Canterbury College of Art for four years and then went on to study at Royal College of Art as a postgraduate. Her mentor John Ward (CBE, late RA, NEAC) was a big influence to her and was an unsurpassed draughtsman, illustrator and a fine portrait painter and he employed Pamela at weekends as his model.
Pamela then later on took up freelance textile designing as a career which earnt her a living, a travel scholarship and some design awards. She was even offered the post of Head of the Design Production Department at John Lewis but turned it down as she realised what she wanted to do was paint.
As a painter and draughtsman, Pamela Kay considers herself to work in the French tradition of Chardin, Ingres and Fantin-Latour. She is best known for still life subjects that often open out to include interiors and gardens, though she also produces landscapes and portraits.
I was so impressed by this, it made me want to pass on my small but continuing knowledge of painting, so I began my blog explaining how I work, which so far has had 88,000 views.
