Pam Vilcsak was born and raised in the Sherwood Park area. In 1991 she completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, majoring in painting, at the University of Alberta. Since then, she has consistently worked at developing her own painting ‘voice’ or mature style. The subjects of her current work are the objects and things that surround her in her everyday life. Mainly they are vehicles she uses to explore the fundamentals of painting which interest her, those being the study of colour, light, composition and application of paint.
She lives and creates art on Savary Island, a small island on B.C.’s Sunshine Coast. Her time is divided between painting and an equal passion, stained glass.
