ABOUT PAM SLATTERY
PAM SLATTERY was born in Melbourne, Australia in 1949. As the daughter of an artist,
Pam had always been interested in art and drawing, but it was not until her
move to the tropics of Far North Queensland in 1979 that she began painting
seriously. Pam has been painting
professionally and exhibiting since 1980 and her paintings were popular from
the beginning of her career. She was
represented by the Upstairs Gallery and Reef Gallery in Cairns, the Mowbray
Gallery and Christy Palmerston Gallery and Port Douglas Gallery of Fine

a time living and painting in tropical beach and rainforest surroundings. In 1999, and again in 2014, Pam was selected
