painting of a Still Life and Interior

Pamela Kay: solo exhibition in London

Pamela Kay loves to paint; whether it is a closely observed still life, in a very domestic setting or an equally scrutinised flower study. The seasonal changes mark a range of subject matter from winter interiors to resplendent summer gardens. Carefully judged tone and colour balance each painting and an intense love of the humble object underpins the still life. In her own words:

"To have earned the time to paint another season of Primroses, Lilies, Cosmos and Roses is all anyone could ask for. In the past I have also been able to paint in my own choice of Paradise Gardens,- the Alhambra, Sissinghurst, the Taj Mahal and for this exhibition, Giverny. Monets’ garden at Giverny is truly a painters’ garden: broad sweeps of spangled colour, vibrating with rich reds, pinks and purples and rivers of nasturtiums. Painting and exhibiting has been my life for the past 50 years (before that I designed textiles for John Lewis) and has allowed me to visit and paint many beautiful gardens. In the winter months, I paint Still Life and Interiors with equal pleasure."

Pamela Kay is a graduate of the Royal College of Art (textile school) and Canterbury College of Art.(Fine Art degree) and was elected as a Member of the Royal Society of Painters in Watercolours (RWS) in 1985.

She became a Member of the Royal Society of British Artists (RBA) in 1984 and the New English Arts Club (NEAC) in 1985.
