Mouth painting became Pam’s new hobby after she was no longer able to play sport due to her physical condition.
Pam suffers from a rare neurological disease known as polyneuropathy which is a peripheral nerve disorder, and it is believed that the immune system attacks the nerves. In Pam’s case, this auto-immune disease has damaged the motor nerves in her arms and legs.
Pam skilfully taught herself to paint and she was recognised by MFPA as a student member in 1989. She has also completed a Bachelor of Arts majoring in Psychology, Visual Arts and Anthropology, and has a Graduate Diploma of Behavioural Health Care.
Pam’s vibrant style of painting incorporates animals, humour and country themes and currently resides in a small Victorian country village called Linton, just west of Ballarat.
