About me

Location Georgia, United States
Introduction "I’m changing. My art is changing. Always a lover of animals and nature, they will continue to be prime targets for my creative expression. But more and more I’m intrigued by ‘slice of life’ venues. Perhaps it simply took a lot of living to really notice the nuances of living. Not grandiose, not glorified… simple, honest. Not dark, not negative… sometimes tongue-in-cheek, always upward. And juxtapositions... organic shapes against strong geometrics, saturated color against muted neutrals, bright light against strong shadows. There is beauty in the everyday. Our ability to see it and share it forms a human connection that is, at once, timely and ageless." Pat's artwork has been collected over much of the US. She started out with multiple local awards in high school in her home state of Georgia, garnering a Governor's Honors live-in program one summer at Wesleyan College, then entering Berry College on a full-tuition scholarship in art. "I took time to raise a family and be active in my husband's business while continuing to learn through occasional workshops, through artist peer groups and by amassing a huge art library."
