Pam Grimmond is an artist and printmaker, based in North Yorkshire.
Pam is inspired by rural and urban architecture both within her immediate environment and further afield. She is attracted by the quirky elements of buildings: turrets and arches that remain above windows no longer present, reminders of former times and lives. Faded advertisements and graffiti, which linger in layers of colour and texture, are also subjects for her work.
Pam is also fascinated by birds and the natural forms of trees and plants, seen on walks around her home. Shapes and colours from these landscapes often find their way into her work.
Pam works by developing drawings into areas of colour and texture, which are then transferred to lino, prior to cutting. Although she has explored working in a variety of printing media, this process allows her to build up layers of colour, creating exciting and unexpected effects.
Pam is studying for the BA [Hons] Degree in Applied Creative Design at Harrogate College. Her work is inspired by Edward Bawden, John Piper, Mark Hearld and Ed Kluz.
She is currently working on a series of prints of local architectural landmarks, alongside smaller images on the theme of birds, which she is producing as small editions.
