Artist Statement

Patricia lives in the S.F. Bay area. She is a mixed media artist.

 

“Dreamlike” is how her art has been described. She combines digital elements with hand-drawn marks and paints with a variety of mediums.  Some of her images start out in the digital world and are incorporated into her paintings. The reverse happens as well.

 

Her use of text in her work can lead the viewer into the intent of her work, “I like to suggest to my viewer a path by incorporating text, but I also want the viewer to be free to interpret what they see.”

Her art represents her internal life. She is a visual person and a collector of imagery. There isn’t a day that goes by that she is not photographing something or drawing, painting, or doodling.

Patricia worked for two decades as a commercial photographer and a photojournalist which has influenced the work she creates today.

Patricia has won many awards and her work has been published and exhibited both nationally and internationally.
