In my second Artist Watch feature this month, I have the great pleasure to introduce to my and Escape Into Life readers the terrific, award-winning work of photographer and mixed-media artist Pamela H. Viola

A resident of the Washington, D.C., area, Pam, who recently returned from a trip to India that has generated many new images, is represented in many public, private, and corporate art collections, including those of the Securities and Exchange Commission, Hyatt Hotels, CBS Television, American Chemistry Council, and Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. Currently, Viola is part of "The Nation's River" exhibit at the Gateway Gallery at Dulles International Airport. Trained informally in a range of artistic disciplines, from painting to printmaking, Viola demonstrates an intuitive feel for the inspired image. Her career includes 15 years in the film industry, where she worked alongside such directors as Ridley Scott and Barry Sonnenfeld. 

Viola is represented by Hisaoka Gallery at Smith Center for Healing and the Arts, Washington, D.C.

In today's Artist Watch at EIL, you will find a selection of images of Viola's pigment prints, including the image above, an Artist Statement, more detailed biographical information, and additional links.
