Pat’s bright, playful work takes food, and other still life objects, as the subject matter for contemporary paintings. She is drawn to simple objects, most notably desserts, and likes to establish good color relationships between light and shadow. Her focus is on color, texture, and graphic compositions that are pleasing to the eye.
Pat has been fortunate to have the opportunity to combine a professional
career as a graphic designer with an avocation and passion for the arts. After graduating from Gonzaga University, her artistic evolution has included art director at San Francisco Chamber of Commerce, art director at San Francisco magazine; senior art director at a design firm; and as an independent freelance designer working with clients around the country.
Over the last decade, she has transitioned from the commercial arena into the fine arts. A third generation San Franciscan, Pat now resides in Marin County. People say her paintings make them smile, and she’s delighted they have that effect.
