Meet a Scientologist—Living the Creative Life—Painter Pamela HollHunt
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.
 The exuberant canvases of abstract expressionist Pamela Holl Hunt are a keyto her personality.Born in Newcastle-on-Tyne, England, in 1945, Pam received classical trainingin the 1960s and 70s in Paris, London and Brussels. But, swept up in the drugculture of the era, she nearly lost the very thing she thought drugs wouldprovide.“Drugs completely destroyed my creativity,” she says.  “It is very ironic,because in the beginning they seemed to give me a surge.  But in the end Ilost the attitude of  ‘What can I create?’ I kept taking more because I hopedthat surge would come back.  It never did.  They took the love of life andpainting out of me.  It was just a trap.”
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 wesaw a sign offering a personality test at the Scientology Mission,” she says.  “Iremember it was raining, and we were drenched.  We walked up to the doorand I saw something so welcoming in the eyes of the man who opened it, Iinstantly felt like I had come home. I was always very spiritual. I had beenlooking for something without really knowing what I was looking for.  I wasso glad I was able to recognize it when I found it.” With Scientology, she not only strengthened her decision to stay away fromdrugs, 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—twogirls and a boy. “We never shoved our beliefs down our boys’ throats, but we lived by theprinciples of Scientology,” says Pam.  “When one of my sons was six he camehome from a friend’s house and asked me why we were so different from hisfriend’s family. I asked him ‘In what way?’  He said at his friend’s they werealways arguing. I told him we used what we learned in Scientology—that’swhy it’s calm and peaceful in our home.”
 3  Hunt talks, paints and lives her life with a youthful energy and enthusiasm.She loves her family, her friends, animals (especially her two cats), meetingnew people, and being an artist. “Artists create out of love,” says Hunt, “and I’m so glad I got my love of lifeand creativity back.” Watch Pamela’s video on Scientology.org.  ###
