Patricia was influenced by Bruce Barnden, Art Master at school, then by Lesley Cole, Head of Painting at
the The Central School of Art and lastly by the French Impressionists.
Working in oils and latterly pastels, producing still lifes, landscapes and nudes of scenes that range from
Twickenham to St.Tropez and New York, Patricia's resulting work reflects the vibrant colours and brilliant light of the South of France.
She has had several solo exhibitions and has had her paintings exhibited in the R.A.,and sold world wide
"I paint because it's there. I look at a scene, building, still life and see the patterns,
rhythms and colours.
I try and reflect this in the vivid beauty and colours of the Cote D'Azure. The patterns and
shapes of a still life and colour and vibrancy of cities like New York and London.
I see buildings as blocks of colour - shadows, unusual shapes, all of which I find fascinating.
As Henri Mattisse said: 'Colour was not given to us in order that we should imitate nature. It was
given to us to express our emotions'
She has had several solo exhibitions and has had her paintings exhibited in the R.A.,and sold world wide. She was Artist in Residence at the Agora Gallery and recently made a member of the Society of Women Artists and the Society of Feline Artists.
