Pam Nolan

“I started painting 8 year ago when I retired from AT&T. My pal Teresa Rutledge suggested we take an art class. We found an oil painting class which we still attend. I started a pastel class shortly after, and found I really enjoyed it too. Since then, I’ve kept busy learning both mediums.

I recently joined the Pastel Society of San Diego, and through them have had the opportunity to hang my paintings at Studio 21 in Spanish Village at Balboa Park, and with the “Ladybug” Art Pop-up exhibit. I’m attending educational demonstrations of new/different techniques, and concentrating on portraiture. In an effort to increase my versatility, I have been practicing other genres too. “Cityscapes” are a challenge but fun; painting animals is a pleasure. I haven’t spent too much time on landscapes; that will be a challenge for another time. My husband Dennis, of 30 years. has a “good eye”, is very supportive, and good at giving positive criticism.”
