About Pam Jarrett

Pam presently lives in Greve, Italy with her husband Chris. Pam is best known for her Portraits, Still Lifes and Vanitas. Her career as an artist began in New York as a decorative painter, but her desire for knowledge and adventure led her to Italy. She studied the Masters at a small school in Florence and remained in Tuscany for six years developing her craft.

She is a studio painter, trained to work in a darkened room with a single, northern light source. The colors achieved by this technique yield lush tones in Portraits as well as in Still Lifes. It is Pam’s belief the spirit of a person or object is best realized from actual life settings rather than from photographs.

Pam is currently specializing in Vanitas, a genre of still life painting dating back to Antiquity. The Vanitas is a portrait depicting the person through the presentation of various objects and symbols. It is an homage. A skull or snuffed out candle is often in the work to represent mortality and the transient nature of the material life.

As a member of the Copyist Program at the National Gallery of Art for 9 years, Pam augmented her skills by recreating the likes of Turner, Rembrandt and Degas.
You can view her works at La Civetta in the Piazza of Greve In Chiani, Italy.
