‘My life as an artist has taken many turns over the years. Artist as student, artist as teacher and now retired teacher as felt artist. Since my retirement, the discovery of felt making has charged me with a new artistic energy. I find the versatility and engineering possibilities for each project both mentally and physically stimulating. At the end of the day, there is usually a sweet surprise, an ah ha moment of inspiration giving me insight for future felt works, bringing with it new and unique possibilities.’
CONVERSATION WITH THE MAKER(CWTM) Did you always envision a life as an artist?
PAMELA MACGREGOR(PM) Actually it was a toss up between art and biology. Obviously art won out in college.
CWTM Do you have a dedicated studio?
PM I am fortunate enough to have a lovely studio. We remodeled a part of my horse barn. It is small and cozy but well equiped for my needs.
