Pam Short

Pam grew up near Saratoga Springs, NY. As a child, she loved to color, draw animals and houses and solve math problems. She spent 22 years working as an engineer before the 9/11 tragedy sent her home with her 3 babies.

Pam's return to her artistic side took off in 2011 when she signed up for a class from local award-winning artist, Jeanne Rosier Smith, who introduced her to pastels.  

To further develops her own artistic voice, Pam attends an occasional workshop from accomplished artists.  “A workshop can take one out of their comfort zone, teach something new or suggest a different way of seeing”.   She plans to teach to share her knowledge which, in turn, will further her own artistic growth.

Pam has won numerous awards and sold in area shows as well as at the Saratoga Arts Center.  She’s also successfully participated in area conservation related fundraisers. 

Pam enjoys exploring new places.  She loves to be outdoors, whether it's hiking, climbing mountains, birding, snowshoeing, gardening or even an occasional walk in the city.  She resides in Lancaster, MA with her husband, 3 sons and 5 cats, however, enjoys exploring wherever her travels take her.
