A Family Business
Pamelina H. comes from a long line of artists and has been painting and drawing for as long as she can remember. Her first illustration was published in the fan pages of Vampirella Magazine when she was only 10. Inspired and encouraged, she set her sights on becoming a commercial artist.
At the age of 13 she became a professional, earning money through embroidery, selling to a local boutique in Carmel, CA. At 17, she had her first paid illustrations under her belt with Gallery and Hooker Magazines.
Soon after, she moved to Europe and left her mark on the town of Arnhem in the Netherlands. She participated in several group art shows, including one at the RAI in Amsterdam and had a one-woman show.
She's worked within the music industry since the mid-80's by creating artwork for cds, tour merchandise, concert laminates and charity giveaways. She's also painted musical instruments for people like Jennifer Lopez, Babyface, Davey Johnstone, Motley Crue, Mick Fleetwood, Sheila E., Soundgarden and many others.
To date, she's painted over 2000 guitars for Fender, Gibson, Ibanez, Dean, B.C. Rich and others. She's painted murals on motorcycles, helmets and cars for Shaquille O'Neal, Vince Neil, Brent Stait and many fine men & women of the police and fire department, from Los Angeles to New York.
Her original work's been published in calendar form, as posters, puzzles, on body jewelry and of course, t-shirts.
She's currently selling prints and original artwork at conventions, galleries and art shows across the country and around the world. And if you don't blink, you'll see her poster, 400 Orgasms, in the greatest movies of all time, Phantoms.
She's been the subject of many articles in magazines ranging from Guitar Player's Guide to Tattoo Savage to America West's in-flight magazine.
