Pamela Baldwin is a wildlife artist, designer, and environmentalist, and is dedicated to children’s health and well-being. Baldwin grew up in a family marked by strong women graced with an artistic streak revealed in lifetimes of collecting porcelains, silver, Chinese snuff bottles, crystal, glass and art. The traditional fine arts of the home—knitting, embroidery, lace making and needlepoint—were learned from her elders. Her artistic tendencies were clearly shaped by those around her.
Pam Baldwin concentrates her artistic talents on animal art and portraiture, the design of French porcelain, English enamel boxes, and American embroidered linens, as well as fabrics and wallpapers for the home. Her refined designs reflect a lifetime of seeing and understanding the natural world and making it appear luminously alive in applied and fine arts. The results are lyrical and expressive images and patterns in various media, often featuring endangered birds, butterflies and other species.
Born in Maryland, raised in the Midwest, and living for 30 years by the San Francisco Bay, Baldwin now makes her home in Raleigh, NC. As with all of Baldwin’s design and personal philosophy, the aura in her charming home, filled with books and surrounded by gardens, is one of the future. To quote one of her heroes, Dr. Jane Goodall, Baldwin lives with a profound belief that there is “reason for hope”, and reason to believe that each of us can make a difference. A portion of the proceeds from the porcelain collection “Wingsong” go directly to The Jane Goodall Institute.
