Milton native Pamella Bounds-Seemans is known for her acrylic paintings surrounded by collage borders and hand-painted frames.  She moved to Rehoboth Beach to become an artist in 1973. She dyed her hair magenta before it became a trend and devoted herself to painting, earning herself the title of Purple Painter Lady.  She received an MFA in painting from Highlands University in Las Vegas, N.M. She is a Delaware Division of the Arts fellowship recipient and won Best Artist from Torpedo Factory Art Center in Alexandria, Va. Her works are owned and displayed around the world, including at the Tideline Gallery in Rehoboth Beach. The subjects of her paintings include numerous versions of landmark locations throughout Delaware, from du Pont homes in the north to Rehoboth Beach shops in the south.
