Pamela Fowler Lordi is a local Denver artist that specializes in creating abstract paintings. Many of her works display expressive emotion and guide the eye across the canvas using contrasting colors. Her paintings include a seemingly endless amount of detail that the viewer will never take their eyes off of. The creative process Lordi uses involves a predominantly improvised method of having a blank canvas, acrylic paints, and the raw expression and emotion to create something out of nothing.

Whether it is through her personal life, current events, or blasting The Rolling Stones in her studio, a painting will be given life through various inspirations. “I want to be able to create something the way a child does.” Said Lordi. “Being able to have the freedom of just making something in the moment, the way you see children creating with chaos, is what I want to try and replicate.”

Lordi has been an artist for as long as she can remember and experimented with many different methods of art before getting deeper into abstract painting. “I spent a lot of time alone as a child. I think that is what got me into things like drawing and other arts. It is a kind of meditation for me.”

When asked about her feelings on the arts and their place in society, Lordi states, “They have a great impact, they really seem to be our only hope sometimes. Art makes people smile, cry, laugh, and feel. We need the arts, whether it is through sculpture, painting, or music. They are a necessity.”
