Pam Short

contemporary realism 

   When the 9/11 tragedy sent her home with her 3 babies, she balanced the challenging job of
parenting by returning to her artistic side. She started dabbling in oils and watercolor before
discovering pastels through an unexpected class with Jeanne Rosier Smith. She has learned
primarily through experimentation and some workshops by accomplished pastelists. Pastels
are a luscious, immediate medium. The colors, effects, and possibilities are endless. She
enjoys experimenting and has recently started teaching classes and workshops to share her
   Pam has won numerous awards and enjoys participating in conservation related fundraisers
near both her homes in NY and Massachusetts. Her work can be seen in area shows,
Fruitlands Museum, Petersham Art Center, NOA Gallery at the Groton Inn, as well as the
Saratoga Arts Center and is in private collections in the US and abroad.
