-Who is Pamela PerryGoulardt?
I’m a professional Artist/Designer with a Master’s Degree from Cranbrook Academy of Art. I was a LIFE Magazine Award-winning Photographer, and I am an Awardwinning Produced Storyteller /Screenwriter. My husband and I operate our own Film Company, FlyingCloud Studios. As a photographer, I rarely

I wanted to know more. Upon investigation, I learned the writing of the

If I could change anything in the world, I would first clean up the water, and then do whatever I could to empower women.
