Pam  Weber

Artist's Statement
As far back as I can remember I’ve always made pictures: pictures that record what I see, a culmination of my experience, a reaction to the world around me; pictures that tell a story; my narrative of family, friends, home, neighbourhood, and community.

My initial idea often requires research and takes form as pencil touches paper. Design, line, shape, underpainting, marking, cohesiveness of colour, positive and negative space involves my full attention. A visual play, if you will. The emotional reaction to my imagery is as important as the imagery itself.

My paintings of my familiar or imagined surroundings: the personification of the inanimate; my vision of a slightly off-kilter, colourful, mysterious, yet inviting world.

Pam Weber Description

Pam Weber was born and raised in Kitchener, Ontario and now resides in Calgary, Alberta. She graduated from the University of Guelph in 1979 having majored in Fine Art.

In 1984 Pam married and moved to Ottawa where she furthered her artistic education by taking classes in lithography and serigraphy from the Ottawa School of Arts. She also studied Graphic Arts at Algonquin College. She was employed as a production artist at a screen-printing business and later worked at a publishing company. In the summer of 1995 she moved to Calgary with her husband and three sons.

Pam has worked in different mediums over the years, notably printmaking and mixed media collage, but she has settled comfortably with acrylic paint. It indulges her love of colour, strong shapes and the play of positive and negative space that are very apparent in her finished works. The vibrancy and versatility of acrylic paint suits her bold, colourful images. “Peaceful landscapes, colourful streetscapes, inviting interiors, and chairs with personality dominate my paper, canvas, tile and boards. My paintings tell a story, but the story told depends on the viewer. My style is a culmination of all I have learned, applied and experimented with over the years.”

Pam Weber has been actively involved with various art groups including the Alberta Society of Artists, Federation of Canadian Artists and the Calgary Artists’ Society. She continues to produce original acrylic paintings for charitable fundraising events, galleries and for the viewing pleasure of her dedicated audience.
