Pam Kessler

Artist’s Statement

“As an artist, you follow a disciplined and meticulous examination of a plant prior to drawing or painting; for you cannot sacrifice accurate botanical information for aesthetic reasons. You must cross the border between science and art, embracing the freedom of one without discarding the discipline of the other.
You must have a passion for flowers, love what you are drawing and painting, and know the flower in all the stages of development.
Hopefully with the composition, use of color, and skill in the handling of paint, you will give the viewer a painting that is admired for its fidelity to the subject, but also for its beauty.”

P.A. Kessler

Bio:

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.

Pam is a member of both The Society of Botanical Artists in England, and 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.

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.
