About Me

Pamela Caughey grew up in Wisconsin, where she received her Bachelor of Science degree in Biochemistry from UW-Madison in 1983.

After moving with her family to Hamilton, MT in 1986, she began her serious study of art, and in 2010 received her MFA in Painting and Drawing from the University of Montana School of Art.

She works in many media, with special interest in cold wax/oil, encaustic, mixed media and acrylic.

Her work is in the permanent collection of several museums (Missoula Art Museum, Holter Museum of Art, Nicolaysen Museum of Art) and public buildings nationally and internationally and her work appears in the newly published book by Rebecca Crowell and Jerry McLaughlin, “Cold Wax Medium: Techniques, Concepts, Conversations”.

After teaching foundations courses at the University of Montana, Bitterroot College (Hamilton, Montana), she is now a full time studio artist and teaches worldwide through here online Art School, ArtandSuccess.com.
