Born and raised in Kampala, Pamela studied Vocational Art and Design with Education from Kyambogo University. Pamela is a bona fide creative who has worked as a copywriter for the last 6 years. Last year she completed a 3- month residency where she navigated the politics of identity, trauma and healing. This resulted into a solo exhibition in June, 2017.
As a visual artist, Pamela is inspired by stories, materials and the process it takes to transform them into works of art. Most notable about her work is it’s tactile and 3-Dimensional quality.
Since her residency last year Pamela has gone on to participate in 8 other exhibitions and there’s no stopping her. Pamela is a member of 32 Degrees East – Ugandan Arts Fund.
Among Pamela’s influences are artists like; Lady Skollie from South African and Liberian-American Lina Viktor Iris. Both women have a recognizable style that she aspires to.
