Pamela Gatens



Painter of colorful florals, cats and abstracts. Happy, loose paintings.

Textile and Surface Pattern Designer utilizing watercolor with a concentration on floral patterns.

I began working in graphic arts while in high school, and enjoyed graphic design and typography as a career until moving to West Virginia in 2002. There I joined Greenbrier Artists at Carnegie Hall in Lewisburg in 2004 and began working in acrylic and watercolor. I am a member of The American Impressionist Society and a Signature Member of the West Virginia Watercolor Society, and am represented by The Greenbrier Hotel & Resort, online with Carleton Varney, Tamarack in Beckley, WV. I have a line of cat and floral cards taken from my many acrylic and watercolor paintings that are sold at The Greenbrier in The Carleton Varney Gift Gallery.

Currently I live in Hillsboro, WV with my husband Pat, and cats Pokey and Mack and monster dog, Smokey. I paint nearly every day. To me, the beginning abstract structure of a painting is the most exciting part. No other activity gives me the fulfillment that painting does. I focus on brushwork, looseness and layering in order to express my love of color.


I am very active on FaceBook, where I post regularly.
