Pam's Bio

Pam Weber, was born and raised in Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario. At an early age, Pam remembers learning and loving to draw. At Eastwood Collegiate, where she graduated Grade 13, art was most definitely her favourite class. 

She attended University of Guelph and graduated in 1979 with a Bachelor of Arts degree, with a Fine Art major. At Guelph, Pam studied a wide variety of art styles, from figurative drawing to sculpture. However, it was printmaking, under the direction of accomplished printmakers Walter Bachinski and Gene Chu that gave her the greatest challenge and satisfaction.

Not surprisingly, upon graduation Pam started working in the commercial printmaking business. In 1981 she started Oink Ink Productions with a partner, a screen-printing company located in Kitchener. This venture allowed her to combine her creativity with the challenges of owning and operating a successful business. 

Gradually, Pam changed her medium from printer’s ink to mixed media and collage, and finally to acrylic paint. In acrylic paint, Pam found a long-running medium in which to create her signature bold and colourful images. 

In the summer of 1995 she moved to Calgary with her husband and three boys, providing an environment to explore a new and, for her, compelling new subject matter, the Western landscape.
