Pamela Price Klebaum - Ventura, California

1. How do you describe yourself? I think of myself as someone who is also smashed about drawing and painting with textiles and fused glass. Writing has always been a part of my core. So either I'm a multi-tasker, or indecisive.

2. What is your creative process? My mind is most creative during two (hopefully) daily activities: bathing and running. New ideas pop out, and, most astounding, solutions to problems appear with no prompts. It feels magical and wildly stimulating.

3. What's your style? I am enamored with digital imaging and love to work with Photoshop and Digital Painter. My work is usually representational, but I am testing the abstract waters at present and finding them quite soothing. Currently I am exploring the relationship between the female figure and architectural form -- so that blends both representational and abstract.

4. How long have you been a quilt maker/fiber artist? 30 years, and the last five in art quilting.

5. Do you listen to music when you make art? No, I record quasi-medium-level-pop-
culture- television and have it on in the background. I readily cop to this. However, I do not watch anything on MTV (no Jersey Shore). Oh, and the Food Network.

6. What do you do when you are blocked creatively? Take a bath and go for a run. Or the reverse.

7. Do you teach? I taught a few Composition (for art quilters) classes this year at the same time I was easing out of my regular college teaching. Favorite part? Students = stimulating.

8. Are there artistic endeavors that you have yet to do? Oh my, yes! Working extra large, for one.

9. How do you balance your family life and art? My husband loves what I do, so it is not a problem!

10. What is the best part about what you do? I have a core of friends whom I met through art quilting. They are precious to me. That's the best part.
