Pamphilon is 'an accomplished musician as well as painter, who has studios in both St Ives and Cambridge, studied music in Paris and at the Royal Academy of Music where she was taught by the renowned harpist Ossian Ellis. During the 1980s she studied painting and in 1986 enjoyed her first solo at the Yew Tree Gallery, then based in Gloucestershire.' (Ruhrmund)
In the interim she has exhibited and travelled widely - from Mexico to India - and produces mixed media paintings of still life and landscapes which are joyous whether painted on wood or canvas. Much of her recent work has been inspired by coastal walks around and about St Ives, where she gathers ideas from the colours and shapes that she encounters along the paths.
