About the Artist
Pam Mahoney was born in Australia and immigrated to Canada in 1967. She grew up on a sheep and wheat farm in central New South Wales. Her father taught her to cut baby lamb’s wool with scissors by the time she was eight years old. Pam learnt embroidery, smocking and sewing through her mother and aunts guidance. She took her first class for quilting in 1981 and quickly developed a passion for it. Her main medium is fabric but enjoys working with wools, ribbons, threads, buttons, old jewellery, beads and many other found objects. She is inspired by colours and shapes that surround her. Pam enjoys experimenting with fabric, through use of colours and texture. Pam has not only Canada wide recognition but international as well, with her quilts being displayed around the world.
