Traditional Artist

Pamela Haunschild

I am a contemporary northwest watermedia painter. My subjects are landscapes, birds, and the ocean. I work hard to develop paintings that speak to the beauty of our natural world and hope to increase viewer’s desire to preserve that beauty. My inspiration comes from living on a wooded high-elevation property near Ashland, OR, as well as several National Park Artist-in-Residence positions (Lassen, Glacier, and Lake Clark (Alaska)).

I work with both watercolors and acrylics, often together in the same painting. My process involves building highly textured layers in my paint, often using natural objects like leaves, stones, bark, and shells as texturing materials. The result is work that is colorful, highly textured, and semi-abstract, but the natural forms can still be identified.

Although I have always been a hiker and nature lover, I came to painting only after a career as a social science professor at Stanford and U. of Texas at Austin. I then devoted myself to painting full-time and was fortunate to be able to study in depth with three nationally-known outstanding artists. I have now received many awards for my work, which is held in a number of private and corporate collections such as the National Park Service.
