A proud autodidact, Pamela describes her style as stylized figurative, fun and feminine. She uses colors that are pleasant to the eyes and light to the soul. Born in the Philippines and currently living in Zurich, Switzerland, she has lived in several major cities such as New York, Hongkong and Abu Dhabi. Pamela has a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Communication. Once a mentor has said to her „The first 5 seconds are vital in creating a fixed first impression, and normally it is 98 percent true.“ Pamela believes that art is entirely subjective. It should not take too long to form an opinion on an artwork. It should not be a forced litigation. She believes that we should rely on our senses. The same is pertinent to the artist. She relies on her senses to guide her in what to attempt. She paints subjects that are engaging to the soul and employs colors that are pleasant to the eyes.

"I am a woman, and I relish the subtlety of being one. My work tends to resonate feminine whims that are tender and cunning. Rather than just an assortment of organs , I see the female figure more as a resonating chamber – like in a musical instrument, but with essence. Each contour has a suggestion, every shade has a tale although our perception and comprehension may bear no resemblance. Female artisans fascinate me the most. Behind the alluring manifestation, skilful flirtation and savvy transactions lies a woman. My eagerness led me inquiring on their sentiment and agony. This intrusiveness lead me to unravel the perplexity of the skilled artisan... of the Maiko... of the coming of a Geisha... Each discovery amplifies my enthusiasm. It is then that they started appearing in my canvas." Pamela Gotangco for the Geisha- Solitary Artisan Series
