PAM Pniak Thompson
I create jewelry, collage and assemblage using metal, wax and found objects. I am inspired by ancient jewelry and artifacts. I am also influenced by random and temporary occurring patterns in nature, industrial and urban settings. When I am not making art I love teaching art classes in my studio. The kids that have grown up taking classes with me are my biggest inspiration. I live in Corvallis, Oregon, with my husband, two kids, two dogs, ten chickens and fifty thousand bees.
