Pamela Stern was born in New York City and lives and works in the rich cultural environment of Carnegie Hill.  Her parents encouraged her to paint at a very early age, and began taking her to the Museum of Modern Art.  This immersion in modern masterpieces set a standard for her work, and evolved into a lifelong practice of finding inspiration in masterpieces of all times and cultures.

As a teenager Pamela studied with Jacob Lawrence. She has undergraduate and graduate degrees in painting from Queens College of the City University of New York and the University of Cincinnati respectively, with additional studies at the Art Student’s League, the Brooklyn Museum School, the University of Massachusetts, and the Fashion Institute of Technology.

Pamela owned and operated a successful textile design studio in the fashion business for twenty four years.  She earned a reputation for having a highly refined eye by her clients, who included Oscar de la Renta, Karl Lagerfeld, Ann Taylor and Federated Department Stores, and by the designers she represented, whose creations benefited both from her inspiring direction and the insightful critiques she gave.

Being involved in the worlds of both fine art and design proved extremely fruitful, as each was greatly influenced and enriched by the other.  Pamela's textile designs were featured in print and broadcast media and nominated for an industry award.  Her paintings can be found in private collections as well as in that of the Hudson River Museum.
