After receiving a BFA from the Oregon College of Art and Craft, Pamela began her artist practice weaving large-scale tapestry. Her later move to Wyoming precipitated a complete shift to encaustic painting. Pamela currently resides in Jackson, Wyoming.
Pamela is represented by Visions West Contemporary/The Stable in Jackson Hole,
and Visions West Contemporary in Bozeman and Livingston, Montana. Her work can be found in collections nationally. She has completed two major commissions: Her tapestry “Tree of Life” was commissioned by Oregon Health and Science University’s Center for women’s health. “Our Valley”, a collection of 60 small encaustic paintings, hangs in the lobby of St. Johns Medical Center in Jackson.
Gibson’s finished work is fully abstract… While you wouldn’t know if a painting of Gibson’s was from her front yard or the National Elk Refuge, it doesn’t matter. She seeks to extract mood and feeling in viewers and create emotion. She succeeds.*
