About

Pamela Harnois - Watercolor Artist

Getting outside is good for the soul. As a watercolor artist, it is always the light and shadow that call to me. Capturing the light is everything; it is my inspiration. That elusive quality can transform a seascape, a flower or a tree in just a matter of seconds. I strive to convey a sense of luminosity by capturing the fleeting moment.

Through my artwork, I try to bring the outside in. I create art that shines a light on my subjects paying tribute to the natural world, reminding us to slow down and reconnect with nature.

My creative goal is simple, to create lasting impressions with a message using the only medium that moves itself and hopefully you.
