Living The Creative Life— Scientologist And Painter Pamela Holl Hunt
The paintings of Pamela Holl Hunt are an expression of love. Her video profile is one of 200 “Meet a Scientologist” videos available on the Scientology website at www.Scientology.org.
Born in Newcastle-on-
“Drugs completely destroyed my creativity,”
Pam met future husband Philip when she was studying painting in Brussels. In 1975, to distance themselves from the drug scene, they moved to Canada.
“We drove cross-country from Ontario to British Columbia. In Vancouver we saw a sign offering a personality test at the Scientology Mission,” she says. “I remember it was raining, and we were drenched. We walked up to the door and I saw something so welcoming in the eyes of the man who opened it, I instantly felt like I had come home. I was always very spiritual. I had been looking for something without really knowing what I was looking for. I was so glad I was able to recognize it when I found it.”
With Scientology, she not only strengthened her decision to stay away from drugs, she also rehabilitated her interest in the world around her.
“I got back all the reasons for living that I lost along the way,” she says.
Pam and Philip married in 1976 and continued their studies in Scientology. They raised two sons, now 33 and 34, and have three grandchildren—
“We never shoved our beliefs down our boys’ throats, but we lived by the principles of Scientology,”
Hunt talks, paints and lives her life with a youthful energy and enthusiasm. She loves her family, her friends, animals (especially her two cats), meeting new people, and being an artist.
“Artists create out of love,” says Hunt, “and I’m so glad I got my love of life and creativity back.”
