Artist Bio

Pamela Wilde received her first formal art training at the Chicago-based American

Academy of Art in the early 1980’s and holds a degree in Advertising Design and

Illustration. Her early career was spent in Tacoma, Washington where she worked for

the Tacoma News Tribune from 1984 to 1989. While employed at the Tacoma News

Tribune she worked extensively in advertising design and editorial illustration. In the

early 1990’s Pamela took a break from her professional aspirations to raise her family,

but continued to extensively grow and further expand her artistic horizons. Pamela

began exclusively painting in oils in the mid 1990’s trading in her commercial graphic

creative leanings to pursue fine art.

Pamela is currently represented by, Artist Emporium 220 Washington Street Havre De

Grace, Maryland 21078. Mr. Robert Buden (owner and curator), Mr. John Krause

(gallery director)
