Pamela Browning

Mexican Folk Art

Pamela Browning started Poquito Arts in Ocean Beach, California where she lived and worked in the historic Casita Roja as a 3 rd generation ‘OBcean’. She now maintains a studio in the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota and happily calls this area home. Her designs are inspired by different cultures, anything vintage,old churches and Mexican Folk Art, especially Dia de los Muertos. Her
assemblage work is often composed of iconic images and repurposed items that combine to make one-of-a-kind pieces. These include embellished nichos,shadowboxes, tiles, bottle caps, old post cards, pictures and jewelry all of which are often combined with hand sculpted clay work. Her favorite artists are Frida Kahlo, Henri Matisse, Utagawa Hiroshige and she’s a fan of Henri Rousseau’s jungle paintings. Watch for Pam’s 2020 Cinqo de Mayo and Dia de los Muertos workshops here at Shaviq Gallery.
