P. A. Kessler (Pam) grew up in the southeastern corner of Michigan and now
makes her home in Hilton Head Island, SC. She acquired her formal art training
at Wayne State University, where she earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree.
Pam is a member of the
American Society of Botanical Artists. Her work has been featured in major
watercolor exhibitions and is well represented in many corporate and private
collections, including Dr. Shirley Sherwood's collection of contemporary
Botanical Art and the Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation.
Pam Kessler is an accomplished artist with a refined sense of draftsmanship,
composition, and watercolor technique. Her artistic insight - a far more
elusive quality - is what has earned Pam a growing national reputation.
Her plants are rendered with a delicacy and grace that faithfully capture
their essence. She does not portray beauty in isolation, but as a revelation
of interaction between observer and observed.
An active response will yield a depth of vision denied the passive observer.
