Pamela Tait is a visual artist based on The Black Isle. She received her BA Hons. in Fine Art from Gray’s School of Art and exhibits her work internationally. Her practice mainly focuses on drawing, illustration and printmaking.
During 2020, Pamela found new inspiration in words and lyrics through two collaborative projects. The first, with Glasgow-based writer Douglas Thompson, was supported by Creative Scotland and culminated in the book Oneironauts (Zagava). The second project was with the Scottish indie band Belle and Sebastian, and led to the publication of The Belle & Sebastian Lyric Book (Thames & Hudson).
Through the process of pareidolia, Pamela transforms the trees and forests in her local environment into a rich gathering of sweetness and darkness, creating a mass of beings who evoke a sense of her imagined folklore.
