Pamela Schleifer Strauss was born and educated in New York City. She resides in N.C. with her family. She was a professional actress and model, yet decided to focus on her first passion, art. For over 20 years her work has been exhibited in galleries in NY, N.C. as well as in London, England. Pamela's work is in private collections around the world. One piece of focus was commissioned for Princess Sophie and Prince Edward of England. Every piece of work is one of a kind, designed and hand created by Pamela with Amadeus Glass Art as her company name. Custom designs are happily accepted and limited only by the limits of the imagination.
