Pam Wells creates Perfectly Amazing Mosaics.
Pam was born in Greenwich, South East London. She has a background in teaching and has always been creative. She completed her teacher training and studied Art and Design at Stockwell College. After college she taught for several years during which time she married and raised a family before going on to pursue her interest in the arts.
Pam then joined The Bexley and District Crafts Guild and has worked for The Chamber of Commerce and Local Authorities in the planning and running of workshops for children and adults. These workshops were a huge success and developed into a travelling road show for children in the inner city areas of London as well as events run by The Arts and Cultural Services and International Women’s Weeks.
Having worked with quite a variety of different materials throughout the years it was Pam’s original handmade greetings cards that really took off. This progressed into the design and manufacture of cards for Harvey Nichols and many other independent stores around central London. She was given a contract to supply Charlton Athletic Football Club with her original and exclusive handmade cards and with private commissions sales going worldwide, it was a busy and challenging time but a lot of fun.
Leaving a hectic work and London life behind Pam now lives in the beautifully diverse area known as The Somerset Levels. It was during a course in stained glass and a workshop in mosaics that a new phase had began. The sheer beauty of the glass and it’s wonderful colours became inspirational to her. Her passion is mosaics and she uses mainly glass along with textiles, paper, paint and the other more traditional materials found in mosaics. Pam exhibits locally and works on private commissions, making for homes, gardens, businesses and public areas. She is also a member of the British Association of Modern Mosaic (BAMM), Somerset Art Works (SAW) and the Artists Directory.co.uk.
“I love the creative world of mosaics and the magic it brings to life, the possibilites are endless and the whole process is such fun. However I warn you it becomes addictive and you begin to envisage everything from a different perspective which is . . . . that would look good in mosaic form!” Quote Pam Wells.
Art is like a language to me it speaks in so many ways and reaches out to all. Living on the Somerset Levels I am surrounded by countryside a beautifully diverse area from which I gain a lot of inspiration.
I have always been artistic and interested in anything creative, especially stained glass I am captivated by the sheer beauty and colour of stained glass windows in any building old or modern. My passion for mosaic began after a long illness it became part of my healing process and a road to acceptance.I use mainly sheet glass a lot of which is re-cycled, along with textiles, papers and the more traditional materials.
I am a member of the British Association of Modern Mosaics and have held exhibitions both locally and Nationally. I enjoy working on commissions in conjunction with individuals making mosaics for their homes and gardens. I also teach and hold workshops.
