Biography


Patricia Martin began her career as an artist painting enormous pieces, the smallest measuring eight feet and ranging up to 100 ft. She owned her own shop and produced work for film, theater and corporate events. Her clients included The International Olympic Commitee, The Hard Rock Cafe, Toyota, and The American Cancer Society.
 
After many productive years, she tired of commercial work and was pulled to create from her heart and soul, to make pieces that evoked love more than awe. She turned to painting things that caught her eye or touched her— animals, nature, structures in dramatic light, to name a few.

These pieces are the work resulting from Patricia’s new path. You can see the excitement she finds as she views the world around her, and you can feel the joy she brings to the canvas with her skill and her vision.
