Pamela Winkler - Making paintings of rust and chrome in my Asheville, NC   River Arts District Studio

About me

“I am drawn to man-made subject matter, probably from my years as an architect.  I enjoy exploring the form and texture of both shiny new and aging objects, often coming in for a close up view.  Dramatic lighting brings depth to the objects and a theatrical sense often at odds with the common nature of the subject.

 

My work starts with a photograph.  I always have a camera on hand to capture unexpected objects and compositions.  I crop the image on the computer to discover the most interesting and dramatic arrangement.  I use a variety of sanded papers, depending on my subject matter and both hard and soft pastels. ”

Winkler graduated from Miami University (of Ohio) with a BA in Art History and a Masters of Architecture.  She worked as a licensed architect in both Ohio and North Carolina.  She currently paints in her studio in Asheville, NC.
