"Taking a break from teaching for a while. I miss my students, they inspire me, but I feel more focused and hope to find growth in my own work."
Pam Talley takes ordinary subjects and transforms them into something beautiful. Realistic, yet creative, her colorful oil paintings of coastal landscapes and still lifes inspire and stimulate reminiscence of fond memories and experiences. Pam is a native Floridian, raised in Southwest Florida and a breast cancer survivor since 2001. She now lives in Tallahassee, Florida with her husband Steve, daughter Taryn and their black lab Slater, but escapes to the coast whenever possible. Pam and her husband own Market Floor Center in the Market District and as the previous owner of the Brush & Palette Studio for over 20 years, Pam still teaches, but spends most of her time painting. Pam says: "I paint whenever I can find a free moment. I love getting lost in the creation and then having something beautiful to show for it. I try to paint from the heart, with subjects that have meaning to me. My work is fluid and ever changing as I grow along with my art and my students. ". She is represented in Tallahassee, Florida by Signature Gallery, in Seaside, Florida by An Apartment in Paris and is a member of Ten Artists, Ltd.
