About Pamela Ruggiero
I am a self taught artist living in the San Francisco Bay Area. I was born in Urbana, Illinois, but have lived in California most of my life. I love to use bold colors in my paintings. My style is impressionistic, whimsical, figurative with the occasional realistic or abstract painting thrown in for fun. I spend most of my time on composition. Once I have the composition, then, it goes faster from there. It often takes weeks or months to come up with the composition. I have over 80 works in the U.S.A.,India, England, Serbia, and Australia. My painting "Back ot the Bus" (sold) was on the cover of "Open Exchange" Magazine. My art is from my heart and is admired by many fans from around the world. I try to give the viewer a message to think about, but, that message is usually one of peace.
