Getting to Know Pam

Define yourself – art/craft wise?   Plodder. If only I could 'plod' like you, I'd think I was flying!
Are you more comfortable working in one particular medium than most others? I am comfortable with most mediums...

Are there any artists or crafters who, more than any others, have influenced you in your creative life and why?  No.
Describe your workspace. Clean and tidy when there is no work, untidy and messy when working.
What 3 tools could you not live without?  Sewing machine, camera, paints.
Do you keep a sketchbook or journal? Yes..yes..yes. Some samples of my work, lots of details on how they are put together, notes from workshops.
We all share our knowledge at Fibres and Fabrics. Do you extend this in any way by participating in or teaching workshops?  Yes, by going to as many forums as possible, also local workshops that are available. Pam recently attended a five day photography workshop given by Steve Gonsalves at Fibre Arts in Ballarat. He will be giving another 5 day workshop at Fibre Arts @ Townsville (see the link on the right under FORUM LINKS) in September which will be a very exciting event for Townsville artists.
How do you inspire your creativity when you’re stuck? Wait for ages for the light bulb to come on!
If cost wasn’t an issue, what avenues would you choose to explore to expand your skills?  As many workshops as possible.
How do you balance your life? A lot of off balance, stand back, think about it, write a list of things to do, then cross off as they are done..
Have you or do you intend to exhibit any of your work, either collaboratively or alone? If so where and when?   Always with Fibres. 
What does your work mean to you?  That deep inside there is something that has to come forward.

Thank you Pam
