After raising two daughters whil residing in Europe, the Middle East, Asia, and various states in the USA, Patricia now calls Asheville home with her husband Stuart.
Living in different countries has influenced her art, whether in subject matter, technique or style. Shape, color and light are transformed onto canvas giving a glimpse into scenes of everyday life, whether it be a still life, animal, or figurative.
