Pam Wilman, ASA paints on location throughout Alberta to increase the awareness of loss of wildlife habitat and wildlife corridors. Her purpose is that future generations will preserve the natural beauty of Alberta. Her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree includes studies at the University of Alberta and Yale University. She has exhibited in 80 group shows and 17 solo shows in Canada and the United States.

The process of painting outdoors on location in the Crowsnest Pass, Waterton Lakes National Park and the Castle Wildlands is to create an awareness about the most biologically diverse area in Alberta, the water tower for southern Alberta and the last intact wildlife corridor in the Rockies in North America.

ASA: Could you tell us about your influences?
Pam: I am influenced by contemporary Canadian landscape and historical landscape masters. I am interested in landscape paintings as art advocacy to educate and promote wildlands in Alberta. I enjoy plein air painting in the Castle and southern Alberta Rockies with a purpose of protecting the rivers and lakes from mining and clear cutting. I have been working on this theme using watercolour, oil, photography and printmaking to ensure protection of the Castle Wilderness as a wilderness legacy for future generations.

ASA: Which body of your work would you consider most successful to date?
Pam: One of my favorite bodies of work was the disaster series and the Lost Creek fire series. The disaster series were painted with impasto paint on large canvases and showed powerful nature scenes such as; tornadoes and fires, which represented emotional turmoil and losses. The Lost Creek Fire paintings were painted on location after a recent fire. I returned to the same areas to show the change over time in the burnt forests.
