About Me

Pamela Quarles is a native of Lake Charles, Louisiana but has lived in Colorado for the past nine years. When her own children were younger, she bred and raised Clydesdale horses from the historic Starbuck Ranch in Divide before moving to Colorado Springs three years ago.

With state certifications in Colorado and Louisiana for K-12 art teaching, a Bachelor of Arts photography degree and graduate work in Art Education, Pamela just finished her 10th year teaching visual arts to k-8th grade public school children and over 25 years teaching private lessons to students ages 3-70. With a love of science, art history and multiculturalism, her artwork is often photorealistic, ethnic or modern artist based in theme.

Her original artworks include black and white and color photography, altered images and photo collages. She also paints in oil, acrylic watercolor and mixed media. Pamela’s 3-D artwork is mostly stained glass, ceramic or china mosaics. Most recently she has mastered oil painted pet portraiture on a commission basis. But the most unique and popular selling pieces she creates are “single continuous contour line portraits” in black ink.
