Artist Biography

Graphic Illustrator Pam Spremulli, shares her “cheerfully optimistic” view of life in her artwork with striking and colorful images.  If she makes someone happy she has done her job.

Spremulli, accredited by the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, MA, is best known for her award-winning (GOLD Mom’s Choice award for distinctive Illustrations) children’s book Letter Birds (PublishingWorks, Inc.) along with her unique interpretations of architectural landmarks from New England to New Orleans. Pam takes familiar images and manipulates color in a way that’s eye catching and engaging. She finds herself very much at home with her subject and instinctively draws the viewers eye to key points that might go unnoticed with more traditional forms of art.

Her artwork has won numerous awards and is privately collected both domestically and internationally.

“The mouse is my brush, the monitor my canvas” is how she describes her technique, “and not to forget a little dab of fun!”

She continues to show her work in galleries in New York along with  several other galleries in and around Cleveland, Ohio. Each summer Spremulli partakes in the Visual Arts of Chautauqua Institution (VACI) Membership Exhibit at Follwer-Kellogg Art Center in Chautauqua Institution, New York. She is also a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) and Northern Ohio Illustrator’s Society (NOIS).

Her second children’s book  WOOF! (PublishingWorks, Inc.) was released in 2011.

Pam was born and raised in the Chautauqua Lake Region of Western, New York, spent many years in Boston, Massachusetts, and now resides in Chagrin Falls, Ohio with her husband and two daughters.
