Pamela Joy Trow creates the mantra of “Many a Truth is Said in Jest.” Her colorful images and meticulous details transport the viewer into a fantastical world of deep expression and meaning.
Trow sees and captures the characters of her art with a unique blend of whimsy and depth. Inspired by a career in branding design and illustration, Trow recognized the power of the message and story.
Her signature use of diverse elements, vibrant color, and deep symbolism, is inherent in all of her creations. Working in a variety of media; acrylic and ink, fiber, digital, and mixed media, Trow’s imagery will create a fervent interest in the meaning behind the paint, threads, pixels, and objects.
Trow’s themes are influenced by her environment and unflagging curiosity. Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, her love for mythology at an early age encouraged a lifelong exploration of archetypes and metaphor. Her time in Santa Fe resulted in a popular series on Day of the Dead. Trow’s transplantation to St. Petersburg, Florida, prompted her creations of capricious mermaids and sea life themes.
Ultimately, Trow creates with a purpose: to share stories of hope and yearning. Her wish is for you to be embraced by her messages and allow yourself to smile from inside out.
