Artist Pamela Corwin

Paper Scissors Rock clocks and magnets are reproductions of original paintings by Northwest Artist Pamela Corwin. Her colorful art is created in her studio in Olympia, Washington and used on a variety of products such as unique whimsical wall clocks, coloring books and decorative refrigerator magnets. Pamela works in acrylics and watercolors, sometimes adding elements of collage to her work. With a huge variety of designs, her whimsical gifts can fit almost any room theme or decor, and are popular with both kids and adults.

Pamela has been in business since 1981 and her work has been featured on several national television shows and in magazines such as House Beautiful, Seventeen and Pacific Northwest. She is a member of the Advisory board for the Buyers Market of American Craft and is a juror for, as well as The American Crafts Retailers Expo in both Las Vegas and Orlando. In 1996 she was commissioned to paint an egg for the White House Easter tree. Pamela also teaches local classes on the business of crafts.

"For as long as I can remember I have painted, sketched, and made things out of anything on hand. As a child, I drew on rocks, napkins, my jewelry boxes, and painted on the lamp and clock next to my bed (much to my mother's dismay, I am sure). Art has always been the way I lose myself, calm myself, it is meditative for me. It comes more from a drive than a desire. I don't know how not to do it. It's as much what keeps me alive as food and oxygen."
