Pam Baldwin

Pam Baldwin is best known as the owner and designer behind paperclutch, where she transforms her watercolor paintings and unique art techniques into invitations & stationery.  She is also known for her fun, energetic, and unique craft parties that take place around the community.

Pam has always loved creating although she never knew a creative career was an option. She spray painted her bedroom walls with chalkboard paint (before it was trendy), thought her TV would look better painted pink, and found artsy uses for almost everything, even plumbers putty.

She never went to art school but made many attempts at a creative career before finally finding her calling. She started out with mixed media collage, then dabbled in bracelet making before picking up a liquid watercolor set.  Many of her pieces are painted using watercolor & white ink but she still loves mixed media and manipulating found and used objects into art.

2020-10 Karen .jpg

Art, design, and creating have been a part of me for as long as I can remember. Primarily working in painting and mixed media, often my work reflects nature, a remembrance, or a thought-provoking concept or idea. My favorite artists include the color of Matisse, the contrast of Carravagio, and the beautiful landscapes of Albert Bierstadt. As such, I don't limit myself in styles and techniques and am always committed to learning new skills and collaborating with others. I love communicating harmony in my work and I often find my inspiration from things in everyday life whether it's a walk in the woods or a memory of a special moment.
