Pam Davis was born in Boonville and except for short periods of time living in San Francisco, New York and Central America, has lived most of her life in central Missouri. She attended the University of Kansas in Lawrence, Kansas, from 1964 to 1969, studying painting under Robert Sudlow and Nick Vaccaro, and drawing under Richard Schira. Artistic influences have been the transformed found-objects of Ed Root, the "Outsider" Paintings of Mose Tolliver, and the monumental concrete "Garden of Eden" sculptures of S.P. Dinsmoor at Lucas, Kansas.
Davis works in a variety of mediums. She often begins with a foundation of recognizable imagery that tends to metamorphous. This is true not only in her paintings, but also in her sculpted pieces.
Davis has exhibited her works in Seattle, Washington, Columbia, Boonville, and most recently at the Stephens Museum- Gallery, Central Methodist Collage in Fayette.
She presently lives in Boonville with her daughter, Amanda Thomas. Her other daughter, Yardley Wing, is also an artist and recently graduated with a degree in fine art from the San Francisco Art Institute.
