Pamela Fox is a Communications Specialist for The Permanente Medical Group, Government Affairs. She has a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Fashion Design. An artist all her life, she works mainly from life: people, animals, street scenes.
Ms Fox says that her connection to artwork is through the sheer pleasure of color and shape and by drawing a subject to feel deeply connected to it by its form. She took the photo of this flower stand and the vendor in an alley off College Avenue in Berkeley, CA. She was drawn by the perspective, the flowers, and the story created by the flower seller relaxing in the sun.
