Pamela Beaverson is best known for the subtle greens, violets, and open skies that appear in her oil paintings of the Great Basin. Her life and work have always been influenced by nature and the outdoors. Because of this love of nature, it is no surprise that Pamela is also an accomplished biological illustrator.
Pamela grew up in Elkhart Indiana. Her early years were spent stomping around the wetlands and lush deciduous forests of Michiana. Pamela studied at the Ohio State University where she received a BFA with a concentration in printmaking and minor in biology. She focused on learning the craft of stone lithography under the tutelage of visiting artist and printmaker, Jeff Sippel, and scientific illustration from renowned herpetologist and biological illustrator, David Dennis. She completed her education at the University of California at Santa Cruz with an MS in biological communication.
Since then, Pamela has made her home in Bend with her wife and three dogs. As often as possible, she heads outdoors to camp, smell the sagebrush, and paint en plein air. Pamela has worked both as an illustrator and oil painter. Her illustrations were included in the exhibit Illustrating Nature at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington D.C. Her fine art has been shown in galleries in Sarasota Florida, Bend Oregon, Boise Idaho, Santa Cruz California, at the Oakland Museum, and throughout the Pacific Northwest.
