Patricia is a wildlife painter, photographer, researcher, naturalist, and conservationist. She use her work as a billboard for awareness — a vehicle for the awakening of the human soul to the necessity of protecting and preserving that which does not speak a human language.
Oil paintings are the declaration, the testimony, that fuels her choices of composition, light, and shadow. Layer upon layer of luscious color creates the atmosphere surrounding form, with strokes that bring a moment into perpetual life, the wild extracted into vibrating painting on linen. The resulting image is a window to a broader understanding of shared, universal consciousness.
The work that she creates is collected internationally, represented by galleries, shown in museums, and published in books. The sale of her work has allowed her to contribute 10 percent of the proceeds to a broad platform of conservation efforts.
“There is a tingling sensation throughout my body when I witness an animal in its native habitat. I travel from the Arctic to the Equator in relentless pursuit of this experience. It occurs in the last strongholds of our diminishing wildlife.”
