“Capturing a scene from life, if even for a moment is a wonderful gift. To paint in the same manner with the same tools that the great artists throughout the ages have used is exciting and daunting. To paint light and shadows and shapes is difficult and wonderful. …To escape to that place where everyday thoughts dissolve into air… that is the thing that the painter seeks. And to produce from canvas and pigments a work that has life in it… and to put ones name on it… is a pure joy.”

Pamela Padgett Bio

My Philosophy: Simple…like me.  “Every painting is a new start and Every day is a new day to paint.”  I love getting up each day and discovering what’s going to evolve on my white canvas.  A rough day in the studio can be exhausting and discouraging.  However, an inspired day of painting… that feeling that I survived the battle in my studio is simply amazing and exhilarating. Painting is hard! It is not a past time for the faint of heart.

I really love dancing around all subject matters. It is not my nature to paint a specific genre and stay there. Searching for inspiration is a big part of my artistic process. Nature, my fellow artist friends, museums and sometimes the music in my studio helps guide my way. Teaching is a crucial component of my own learning process, watching other artists develop and grow is a joyful thing. Leipers Creek Gallery has been an amazing venue to teach from on Monday mornings throughout the year.  And so…the learning never ends!  I love the challenge and excitement of new discoveries… and every painting is a new start and every day is a new day to paint.

Pamela Padgett is an artist who works with a painterly approach to traditional themes including landscape, still life and figures. Her oil paintings are represented in collections across the country.

Originally from West Virginia, Pam eventually located to Tennessee working in advertising as an art director. She turned to the fine arts field and studied with numerous nationally known painters.  She resides in Williamson County, a strong artistic community of both painters and songsmiths. Pam is married to John Padgett and they have two grown children.

Padgett currently conducts painting classes to a select group of artists in middle Tennessee. She also conducts 3-4 day workshops.
