Pamela Scott Wilkie
Pamela Scott Wilkie's work is in private collections in the UK and many parts of the world and in numerous public collections including the V&A and The Rijksmuseum, the Netherlands.
She was born in London and originally studied Fine Art with a former student of W. R. Sickert. Interpreting experience through drawing and colour is a common thread which links her paintings, drawings, prints and artist's books. She is particularly interested in exploring memories of poetic moments when time seems to have been suspended.
"...These pictures send out signals which can be seen out of the corner of eyes at all times of the day and night, enriching people's lives..." David Brown M.R.C.V.S.

Pamela Scott Wilkie has produced two significant series of prints; Journey in 1970 and Horizon in 2008, which was commissioned by the Ikon Gallery, Birmingham.
In 1970, Pamela Scott Wilkie drove overland to Asia from the UK through Turkey, Iran and remote parts of Afghanistan. She produced a suite of 20 hand-pulled screen prints based on this experience, setting up a studio in Rawalpindi making them there in a signed and numbered edition of 45. Forty years later these prints retain a huge freshness and vitality.
The Horizons series of prints was commissioned by the IKON Gallery in 2008. A series of 18 hand-pulled screen prints each in a limited edition of 20 represent a kaleidoscope of images inspired by recent visits around the globe and the threads which are pulled through different geographies while travelling and returning to see experiences at home with fresh eyes.
