Biography


 
 
"Whether I'm painting or teaching, I live, love and breathe art. God has given me a gift to share with others, while I'm here on earth!" 
 
Pat was born in upstate New York, started painting at the age of five and at 17 had her first solo art show. In her youth and adult life, she wins awards in shows and competitions throughout the United States.  Studied at the California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland and the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, receiving a BFA in Illustration with distinction. Working as a freelance designer and illustrator for several years, she always found herself gravitated towards abstract art.  Pat is inspired by some of the greatest abstract artist such as: Richard Deibenkorn with his use of color and geometrical shapes, Robert Motherwell's use of negative and positive space and Robert Rauschenberg's collage and color. She is always experimenting with new materials and surfaces, now working primarily with acrylics, water-media, mixed media and collage on paper, wood and canvas. 
Currently teaches at her studio in Pleasant Hill, CA and her work is shown in several National and International exhibitions and is collected throughout the United States and Internationally.
