Pam Coffey is an Amarillo artist who began her artistic journey several years ago. She works primarily in watercolor and pastel, and focuses on landscape and street scenes. When not pursuing her art, Pam enjoys hiking in Palo Duro Canyon and in other locales, and playing in the dirt of her flowerbeds.
I think everyone should look for the creative spark that already exists in each of us. The goal of art is not necessarily the final product, but the journey to get there: looking at a subject or scene with different eyes, experimenting with colors and mediums, coping with the inevitable disasters and learning from them, and finding contentment in the time carved out for oneself for this creative journey.
Pam has lived in Amarillo for over 30 years. She is a native of Perryton and a graduate of both Texas A&M and West Texas A&M. She spent a number of years in the newspaper world before becoming director of the Dispute Resolution Center at Panhandle Regional Planning Commission.
Since retiring a few years ago, Pam and her husband Dan have enjoyed travelling and she captures many of the travels’ moments in her art. She and Dan are the parents of 3 grown children and 3 grandchildren. Their travels take them to the far flung destinations where their adult children live: Dublin, Ireland, Arlington, Virginia and Cambridge, Massachusetts.
