There was never any doubt for Pam or anyone who knew her that she would grow up to be a professional artist in some form. Her father, singer Jerry Vale, set an ideal example of how to hone your craft and share your artistic gifts with the world. With over 29 years of experience as a decorative artist, a background in retail and wholesale markets and a degree in Fashion Design, from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles, California, Pam brings a valuable and varied skill set to surface design, art licensing and illustration. She is a published artist with a strong sense of design. Her colorful work is hand-drawn and then edited with layers in Photoshop. Pam has always chosen to view her art and the world with a childlike curiosity, quite possibly the side effect of attending a Montessori school as a child. Along with her drive to discover beauty and create, is an equally strong need to inspire others.
