' education in art began early. She first studied with her father, Richard Ingalls, who created the Art Department at Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA. She continued at the Accademia Delle Belle Arte in Florence, Italy in 1977, then returned home to earn her Bachelor of Arts degree from Gonzaga in 1979. She later worked with Frederick Frank in New York and subsequently studied oil painting under Ron Lukas in Seattle. More recently she has studied with Richard Schmid and Burt Silverman. Strong color and sound drawing are primary in her paintings. Her choice of simple subject matter is surprising, sometimes humorous, and always full of emotion. Portraits, still lifes and interior scenes populate her studio. A table with chairs, a diner counter top, rubber boots standing by a kitchen door, even a bowl of cherries - all evoke a sense of humanity and presence, as if someone is either about to enter the frame or has just left it. Pam has exhibited in over 125 national and international juried art shows, where she's won more than 60 prizes. Her work has exhibited in 28 states, and is in collections in numerous countries.

work Thrown To The Wind
encases materials which are thrown away carelessly in Zhiyuan’s hometown and other surroundings in China. The work challenged me, as the artist has used materials within this work which are usually regarded as rubbish. His tornado like structure highlights the impacts of rubbish disposal, as he links the careless nature of discarded items with a natural disaster which would impact thousands. The eleven metre structure is partnered with a video documentary which informs and ultimately overpowers the audience and makes a strong social comment on material and commercial waste.
