I am an artist you know ... it is my right to be odd. ― E.A. Bucchianeri
Pam Quinlan

Pam Quinlan grew up in Zimbabwe. As a child she would accompany her mother, an accomplished landscape artist, on frequent painting excursions into the countryside. These experiences gave Pam an early insight into the creative process.

Pam's artistic career began in 2000, and she has since become a well-known and sought-after artist, her works on display in select galleries, exhibitions and boutique markets around South Africa. Many of her wildlife paintings have found homes all over the world, and her commissioned paintings have delighted patrons as far afield as Australia, Canada and the UK.

Pam loves the magic of watercolours, finding joy and excitement in the unpredictable nature of this responsive medium. But with a truly African sense of adventure, she relishes new ways of creating, and her more recent works display a growing mastery of oils, acrylics and mixed media.

She specialises in capturing the unique character of African wildlife, land and seascapes, and more recently, the unique scenery of South Africa's beautiful western Cape region.

Her wildlife portraits display a startling realism, and the sense of mood and space captured in her land and seascapes speak of her great mastery and keen powers of observation.

In 2014 and again in 2018 and 2019, Pam was honoured to receive the South African Society of Artists prize for Best Watercolour.
