Pamela Phillips is a graduate of the Maryland Institute College of Art. Her work has been exhibited over the years in numerous group and solo exhibitions here on the East Coast, as well as in Venezuela, the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico and Costa Rica.
Although known for being a figurative painter, a botanical dialogue and exploration has emerged in recent years. Rooted in her thoughts as a painter is the core theme of nature and spirituality and our deep connection to it, often in combination with an underlying image/format of books and their pages. In this context the image of a “page” taken from a book becomes representative of being a moment of time, yet part of a continuum in thought and physicality. The eco-spirituality movement that continues today has greatly inspired and guided her work over the years. Phillips is currently working on a series of solar etchings and monoprints further exploring these themes.
Her work is included in many private and public collections including the Inter-American Development Bank, Washington, DC; The Health Insurance Association of America, Washington, DC; The International Headquarters of the Lockheed Martin Corporation, Bethesda, MD and The Distinguished Maryland Artists Collection of the University of Maryland.
