Pamela Crawford continued to exhibit, worked as a stage designer, and with her husband Jim Crawford was an active participant in left-wing sponsored cultural and political activities. In 1988, Pamela Crawford donated a large number of artworks from the Miya Studio to the University of Queensland Art Museum. As an artist, Pamela Crawford was known as Pamela Seeman.
