Art in the Library at Sequim Branch Library

Sequim June—August Artist: Pam Dick

Lava Towers

Pam began her digital art career 10 years ago with 3D rendering of fantasy characters. “I have always been fascinated with science and technology,” she says. “One year, I received a calendar for Christmas that had a year in fractals. I was hooked after February and sought out the method to create these images. When I saw the complicated program I figured I was too old to be revisiting my math education, but I pushed on.” Fractal generation was a respite from the labor intensive digital art creation. Soon fractals became her main focus. Spirit Dancer Nine years later, she travels the universe, visits the ocean depths, and explores places totally unknown to her. “I never know where I will go when I sit down to create a new image,” she adds, beaming. “But I love the adventures and hope others will also.”

Art in the Library is a collaborative library/community art project featuring rotating exhibits by local artists. The program has been made possible by generous contributions from the Friends of Sequim Library, and also by the efforts of volunteer art coordinator Randy Radock. Pam Dick’s fractal images will remain on display at the Sequim Branch Library through the end of August.
