It wasn’t until the 1990s that she finally settled into working as an artist. Initially a craft painter, Pam’s artwork would adorn muslin pillows and wooden accent pieces. As her work evolved she was bitten by the New England bug, a painting style she’s happily adopted.
After spending a few years vacationing in New England she and Ken decided to take a leap and move to what is known as Downeast Maine. Far removed from the sophistication and tourist crowds of southern Maine, Britton is surrounded by good neighbors and unspoiled, natural terrain. This beautiful backdrop inspires her artwork, which has been well received by the local community. Pam often pays tribute to specific local landmarks in her work and has even been commissioned to create a sign for her town.
Britton says, “I have to credit my mother and my husband, to whom I’ve been happily married 40 years, for giving me the encouragement and advice and downright physical help to succeed over the years.”
In summer of 2012 Pam and her husband decided to return to Texas, settling in the little town of Lometa on the western edge of the Hill Country. It was a move for a warmer climate once again, but also the prospects of new inspirations for artwork in the Lone Star State.
