Pamela Glasscock was born in Colorado, and studied fine art at Stanford University. In 1974 she met her future husband, artist Tony King in New York, where the couple pursued their careers until the early 1990s. During this time Glasscock focused on landscape and still life in silverpoint, a Renaissance drawing technique.
The couple spent summers in California until 1992, when they relocated permanently to Freestone with their two sons. After the move, Glasscock began to paint flowers from her own garden and those of friends. Her drawings and watercolors of flowers are meticulously rendered, created with amazing scientific precision.
Glasscock’s watercolors of Sonoma County wildflowers illustrate the 2007 Annual Report of the Sonoma County Community Foundation. The foundation helps support local community efforts through philanthropic grants and civic engagement.
“My work is botanically accurate, but also metaphorical, an opportunity to make theatrical presentations using plant elements, as if I’m directing them on a stage.” – Pamela Glasscock
“Pamela Glasscock’s classical botanical watercolors impart a sense of beauty and emotion about the natural world put forth to the viewer with a highly skilled hand. A graduate of Stanford University, Pamela’s sensuous blossoms, delicate and ripe with color have caught the attention of many galleries and museums across the United States.” – I. Wolk Gallery
