Pamela works in multiple formats including but not limited to collage, painting, photography and assemblage.

She often uses her personal experiences as a point of departure to help frame or reframe the subjects she engages with. Pamela is inspired by stories, materials and the process it takes to transform them into works of art. Pamela describes herself as a maker. She believes that one cannot go through the process of creating without themselves being ‘recreated’ or transformed’ To date Pamela has won the inaugural Makumbya Musoke Art Prize, participated in numerous workshops, exhibitions and residencies in Uganda, Congo, Mali, Tanzania, Dubai, Israel and most recently France as part of Africa 2020 and Netherlands at the Art The Hague Fair
