Born in 1967, UK. Lives and works in Stroud, Gloucestershire, UK.
Pamela Bowden is a fine artist with a background in archaeology and ethnography. Her experience as an ethnoarchaeological ceramicist led her to work with clay and explore concepts of time, fragility and the impermanent nature of life.
Pamela was awarded a BA in Archaeology at The University of Newcastle upon Tyne in 1989. She was graduate scholar with The British Institute in Eastern Africa in 1990. Following this she spent a year at The Pitt Rivers Museum in Oxford on a master of studies programme.
In 2013 she completed a foundation course in Art and Design at Stroud School of Art and was awarded a distinction. She then developed her practice by undertaking research at South Gloucestershire and Stroud College.
In 2016 she completed her MFA at Bath Spa University and has since been setting up a studio in Stroud.
