Pam Hopkins is a multi award-winning artist who has been painting and drawing all her life. She has become very well known for her depictions of horses and people in everyday life. Collectors throughout the world seek out her action-packed paintings of racehorses. Since entering the gallery scene in 1980, Pam has exhibited in Queensland, New South Wales, South Australia, Northern Territory, Singapore and Hong Kong.
From when Pam was a little girl, she always wanted a pony. Her maternal grandfather was a great horseman and her father was an SP bookie, so it could be said that horses are in her blood.
When she started to draw and paint, her first subjects were horses. They have continued to fascinate her as subjects. She loves to capture the action of horses in sport and at work.
Pam also likes to capture the human form in the landscape. There are few of her works that do not feature people.
Her work covers subjects ranging from the people of Australia's outback to bright, happy impressions of the coast. She paints mainly in acrylics but has worked in all media. She has recently produced a series of limited edition and open edition signed prints, and cards, these being the affordable alternative to her originals.
Pam's work may be viewed at her home studio in Imbil Queensland, in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland.
