Pam Ingalls paints light falling on ordinary people, objects, and scenes. Raised in Spokane, Washington, she was first inspired by her parents, artists Richard and Marjorie Ingalls. She studied art at the Accademia Di Belle Arti in Florence, Italy and earned an art degree from the art department that her father began at Gonzaga University in Spokane.
Strong color and sound drawing are primary in her paintings. Her choice of simple subject matter is surprising, sometimes humorous, and always full of emotion. Portraits, still life and interior scenes populate her studio. A table with chairs, rubber boots standing by a kitchen door, even a clawfoot tub - all evoke a sense of humanity and presence, as if someone is either about to enter the frame or has just left it.
Her work has been exhibited throughout the United States, Europe, and Africa, and juried into more than 125 national and international shows.
Pam was selected to create the portrait of Kevin and Mary Daniels. The Visionaries is part of the Private Collection of Kevin & Mary Daniels.
