Creative to the Core
Pam Vale is an artist to her core. As far back as she can remember, Pam has been an observer. Having a parent that was a renowned entertainer made it possible from the beginning for her to freely accept that she could make a living doing what she loved. There was never any doubt for Pam or anyone who knew her that she would grow up to be a professional artist in some form.
Her father, singer Jerry Vale, set an ideal example of how to hone your craft and share your artistic gifts generously with the world. The experience of growing up in the entertainment industry and being constantly surrounded by talented performers helped shape her creative future.
Well Rounded Experience
With over 30 years of experience as a decorative artist, a creative instructor, a background in retail and wholesale markets and a degree in Fashion Design, from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles, California, Pam brings a valuable and varied skill set to surface design, art licensing and illustration.
She likes to be challenged and works in a variety of styles and genres. Her work is hand-drawn and then edited digitally in Photoshop, sometimes incorporating her own photographs. She is currently creating art collections for licensing.
Inspiration Behind the Art
Pam has always chosen to view her art and the world with an insatiable, childlike curiosity, quite possibly the side effect of attending a Montessori school as a child. She has a contagious, positive outlook and a genuine enthusiasm for what she does.
Pam believes in building strong, collaborative working relationships, works well with tight deadlines, creates art for the end product and loves growing a collection.
