About Pamela Horsnell

I am a Sydney-based artist working in a range of media, including watercolours, linocuts and printmaking. I have worked extensively as a botanical illustrator with my work published in a wide range of books and magazines, but in more recent years my work as an artist has ranged well beyond the world of gardens, plants, wildlife and nature.

The year so far…

I can’t believe today is the first day of October & I still haven’t posted a blog for 2017!
So here goes…

It’s been a very busy year for me with teaching & exhibiting so have actually been more active on my Facebook page & also set up an Instagram account a few months ago to showcase my work so you can follow what I’m doing on both of those now too:

On the last Wednesday of each month I teach a 3-hour watercolour & drawing workshop at The Bakehouse Studio in Marrickville & since January have covered such varied themes as: Summer Fruits; Water Views; Kitchen Still Life; World of Trees; Urban Sketching; Going Green; Native Plants & Figures. In September I also taught a Travel Sketching workshop at another local Marrickville venue, Rizzeria.

On every other Wednesday this year I have been teaching a casual 3-hour watercolour & drawing class at The Bakehouse & last month the owner of The Bakehouse Studio & Marrickville ceramic artist, Lisa Hoelzl, asked me to join her for an Open Studio every Friday morning as well. Outside of these weekly classes I have also been teaching regular one-on-one classes to some of my students during the year.

2017 has been a busy one again for exhibiting with another joint Pop-up show in March with potter, Lou McCallum, & I joined him again in August for a group show at his Marrickville shop & gallery – Made Local. I’ve also participated in 5 group exhibitions so far this year including the 2017 Australian Society of Miniature Art (ASMA) National Awards where I was awarded a Highly Commended Award on Opening Night for one of my miniature watercolours.

Well, there is still another 3 months left of this year so I will be continuing teaching my regular Wednesday classes & workshops as well as joining Lisa every Friday for the Open Studio. I’ll also be showing my work in a few upcoming group exhibitions so busy till the end of the year!
