Patty maintains art studios in Vancouver BC, DeCourcy Island in the Strait of Georgia, and Shuswap Lake BC where she draws much of her inspiration for her work.
Patty's paintings are bold muscular works with luscious colour, painterly application of paint, and strong sense of form, light and feeling of mood.
"Noticing the subtle nuances of colour, play of light and the essence of the landscape has inspired my painting and this series."
