Pamela Contreras is native to Houston, Texas. Over the years she has learned and created with many different arts and techniques including drawing and painting, apparel design and sewing, sculpting, photography, make-up art, woodworking, mold making and casting, doll making and reborns, antique Doll restoration and Kinetic art/animatronics.
Pam began her artistic career as a professional photographer in 1998. She became a remembrance photographer in 2010 for the international nonprofit organization, NILMDTS and currently serves as an area coordinator. Her love for sci-fi movies also inspired her to begin sculpting creatures and monsters. She decided to move on from the photography business and began sculpting full time. In 2011, she opened an online shop and started selling her hand-sculpted creatures and bizarre artwork worldwide.
While Pam is primarily self-taught and sculpts in clay, she loves to experiment with many different techniques, and utilizes various materials to achieve the desired effect. She enjoys working with different types of clay, silicone, resin and foam. Pam draws her inspiration from her profound love for science fiction movies, aliens and all things weird. She finds the beauty in things, where other may not.
Pam currently works from her home studio in Sugar Land, TX.
