Pamela Leatherman’s Artist Statement
I have been a maker since I was a girl, when crayons and finger paints were my form of expression. Throughout the years, I have explored clay, yarn, fabric, metal, leather, glass, wax and paper, which I transformed into scarves, quilts, bowls, journals, candles and clothes. At this time in my life, I am exploring acrylic paint on canvas without the use of traditional paintbrushes. I instead play with the paint using my fingers and hands with additional assistance from towels, scrapers, bottle brushes and more.
