Pamela Clarkson

Pamela Clarkson is in the unique position that she stands with a leg in both Ghana and Europe. Born British, married to a Ghanaian and resident in both England and Ghana, she manages to gather the essence of her two worlds in her art.

Pamela Clarkson works mostly with prints, where she produces an embossed effect, whether the material is plywood, wood, linoleum, handmade paper or, for example, randomly found objects. The expression is elegant, beautiful and expressively.

Her work usually originates from something she has seen or experienced, often first interpreted through a pencil drawing, and then develops the image by adding and deselecting different material to test the possibilities. She says that this little special workflow for her many times comes closer to the original idea than the result.
