About the Artist

Pamela Durrans

Pamela lives in the Oldham area and started painting and drawing in her retirement – first using watercolours and then oils. Her work tends to be mainly figurative, but she also enjoys painting landscapes en plein air and from photographs.

Charcoal life drawing and portraits are another of her passions and she tries to vary her techniques and approaches in an attempt to breathe life and reality into her finished artwork. Pamela feels art is relaxing, therapeutic and at the same time challenging, but finds self belief and determination are valuable assets.

Being a member of the SGA has given Pamela inspiration and encouragement to grow as an artist.
