Some people embroider, others quilt; some knit, others paint
but Pamela Swainson likes to mix her artistic metaphors
- Pamela paints knitting (but not exclusively)!
Like so many creative people her heart lies in the countryside
as does her source of inspiration. Her mantra for life is
"local livng and sustainability" all built upon a bedrock of the
quiet growing of the trees, sunrise, sunset and a menagerie of
furred and feathered creatures.
|Pamela's free range chooks|
Pamela lives with her partner on a small farm in the Cobequid Mountains
of Nova Scotia, Canada although originally from Manitoba where she
was born to second generation Icelandic immigrant parents.
Her work has been exhibited in a number of local shows in the region
including Tatamagouche and Truro both solo and alongside other
artists. Her portfolio is certainly eclectic and she has in her time
painted everything from figurative work to landscapes, streetscapes
and, of course, knitting.

I wonder if my LNS has a pattern for a waterfall?
