Pamela Belknap lives and works in San Francisco. She graduated with MFA from San Francisco Art Institute. She reads underlying meanings from everyday objects, and their relationship to the world. Her art works relate to human beliefs, rituals, and traditions. Often times our beliefs become more important than critical thought. The central concept is to ask the viewer to reexamine a belief.
