Pamela Acheson Myers is an emerging artist with a growing list of galleries and juried exhibits showing her artwork. While her abstract landscapes and seascapes offer the viewer much to enjoy, the depth of her artistic abilities will excite you. Her abstract paintings are celebrations of color, imagined floating hibiscus blossoms have lives of their own, and her drawings of birds offer a super sense of realism. As we go to publication, Pamela just notified us of her work’s acceptance to The Artists’ Challenge at the Plaza Theater in Manalapan! The Rickie Report shares some highlights of Pamela’s dramatic creativity and the venues where you can see her work.

“Jets’ Colors” by Pamela Acheson Myers
Pamela paints mostly on linen and occasionally on canvas, using acrylic paints. Her paintings are as large as 4 x 6 feet and as small as 5 x 7 inches. She explains to The Rickie Report, “Intense color has thrilled me for as long as I can remember, whether it appears in a spectacular sunset, or a wildly wallpapered room or a tropical bird’s brilliant rainbow of feathers.”
“Bahama Sunrise” by Pamela Acheson Myers
She says, “Since my childhood, I have been fascinated with the reflections that transpire when any combination of land and sky and water meet and I attempt to capture this in my abstract landscapes.
My purely abstract paintings are a tribute to the extraordinary nature of color.”
“Can’t Get Enough Of You” by Pamela Acheson Myers
A world traveler and author, Pamela states, “The multitude of colors and reflections in the outdoors dazzle me! I have been painting these vistas and the reflections they create from places all over the world, from Newport to the Florida Keys, to Venice, Italy to the fjords of Chile. For me, every view of the convergence of land, water and sky is a magic moment – a natural canvas of colors and reflections never seen before. Some are dramatic, some wildly chaotic and others blissfully peaceful. Every one is unique.”
“Just Passing By” by Pamela Acheson Myers
Her hibiscus series surprises, with brilliant blossoms becoming lively personalities in the night skies. Pamela’s bird portraits show exceeding details, as she continues to explore the depth of her range of artistry.
