Biography


Patricia Payzant finds inspiration for her oil paintings in the unique features of the local landscape, as well as in the controlled discipline of studio painting.  Her early interest in art evolved from an appreciation of the work of talented family members.  While working in a technical career, she sought her formal art education at the Boston School of the Museum of Fine Arts, and the Washington DC Corcoran School of Art, as well as pursuing further instruction in painting under the individual guidance of skilled teachers.  Now retired and painting full time, Patricia keeps her artistic vision fresh by spending her winters in Southwest Florida and travelling to Maritime Canada for the summer and fall months.  She is an active participant in several Florida regional plein air groups and has won awards from Florida art organizations (CFABS, FMBAA, NAA).  She volunteers with local art associations, has donated paintings to support local charity/fundraising causes, and serves on the Board of the Fort Myers Beach Art Association (FMBAA).
