Pamela Staker has been making art ever since she could hold a crayon. She also went to school for it. First, her mom taught her, and then Staker attended the University of Illinois, where she had a very short-lived stint as a math major. Staker quickly turned to a BFA in painting. Pamela received several grants and awards early in her career, including an Illinois Arts Council Fellowship and a CAAP Individual Artist Grant from the City of Chicago, Department of Cultural Affairs. Her paintings are in numerous private and corporate collections, including The Sophy, a boutique hotel in Hyde Park, Chicago, IL, The Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, Vanderbilt University, Nashville, TN, Capital One, Chicago, IL, and Cascade Hills Country Club, Grand Rapids, MI. Her studio is located at The Bridgeport Art Center (BAC) in Chicago and is available by appointment or once a month at the BAC Third Friday Open Studio Events.
Staker examines abstraction through a compiled visual language of urban symbols, geometric shapes, figurative elements, and pops of nature. Her process is energetic, creating works that are animated fragments of modern life.
