Ever since Patrick was first introduced to pastels when she was 14, she's had a passion for drawing people and animals.
"I have found myself returning over and over to the challenge of capturing a person’s mood or an animal’s particular
personality or soulful expression," Patrick says. "I also paint in oils, but am more drawn to pasteIs, which I feel are especially suited to achieving the quality of light striking the subject or the texture of skin, fur or feathers that I am seeking."
Patrick has exhibited and won awards in juried shows across the U.S., including the Pastel Society of America National Exhibit in NYC, several Pastel Society of the West Coast USA Exhibits, the National League of American Pen Women Biennial Exhibit in Washington, DC, the Richeson Gallery and the Marin Society of Artists.
