My latest oil paintings and drawings is inspired by Dutch Master floral artist. My contemporary interpretation incorporates intricate and painterly brushwork. I create my representational oil paintings using saturated colors to stir the imagination. Working to capture the look, texture, of holding these gifts of the earth serves to recreate the hopefulness of springtime, and uplifting effects plant life inspires.

After working as an electrical engineer, I decided to pursue a lifelong passion of creating art, always learning through ongoing workshops and practice.

Pat has lead workshops, lectures and exhibited her artwork in juried exhibitions throughout the United States, including Marietta/Cobb Museum of Art, Slater Memorial Museum, and Maryland Lowe House of Delegates. Her artwork has been featured in WMAR TV2, Catholic Charities calendar cover art, The Baltimore Sun, The Catholic Review, Baltimore and Historic Ellicott City Decorator Show Houses, Schiffler Publishing books "Show Houses 1", "Show Houses 3" and public mural work in Towson Maryland.
