Pam Eberlin's Profile

About

I have been an artist all my life, and it is all I ever wanted to be. I am a hopeless collector of vintage and antique items, using my collections to create my art.

I don't do "perfect", each of my creations have imperfections, just as we all do. Since I use vintage objects in my work, they all show wear and tear and love from age. Again, as we all do.

I have had a studio at Union Street Gallery in Chicago Heights, since 2002. If you are ever in the area, stop by to see us and our current shows, or visit us at unionstreetgallery.org

I have a BA in Art, specifically in metalsmithing and jewelry. I have worked for a commercial jeweler, but mostly as a teacher. I currently teach art to 1-8 graders, and love it.

Artists Statement
Funky, whimsical, fun, sometimes serious or thoughtful, my art is inspired by multitudes of collections of paper ephemera, glass, metal, vintage games and pieces, vintage found objects, and female figures & dolls. Large and small works of art created for viewing or wearing, evolve in many directions as I work. Textures and surfaces are formed by repeated layering, construction, and manipulation. Incorporating text or words adds another dimension for the mind and eye. Society’s portrayals of women as well as women’s own body images interest me. At the same time, I explore the meanings of games and play and the timeless stories of mythology. I continue to explore the boundaries of my materials and imagination.

I hope you enjoy my creations.
