About the Artist

Who would have thought that a young girl would be inspired to pursue a life as an artist by the act of a simple gift.

While visiting New York City with her family to tour the area museums, Patricia fell ill and was unable to join them. Her parents brought her back a book from the Metropolitan Museum of Art on how to draw wildlife and Patricia spent the next several days in bed copying the pictures. This was a pivotal moment in Patricia's life, setting the stage for her career in the arts.

In high school Patricia flourished in the arts and was elected as president of the National Art Honor Society. She studied bronze sculpting and conceptual arts with award winning artist Whitney Wolf at Maitland Arts Center while attending college at Florida State University, and studied classical piano and flute.  

Over the years Patricia was swept up into the corporate world but continued to paint and draw for personal satisfaction as well as securing work as a commissioned artist.    

"I always strive to infuse an artistic vision into whatever I undertake, including my music." Patricia performs with Victor Wainwright and the WildRoots on backing vocals and saxophone and with the Bandees on vocals, flute, saxophone, oboe, organ, harmonica and bass; and has been privileged to do the art work on several of their CD projects.

Patricia has also had the opportunity to bring her creative talents to the table in the corporate environment; with graphic, website, and video design.  Examples of her video work can be seen at PerfectByte.

Her most recent project, Avatar Dream, is a 360 degree 4 wall mural inspired by the landscapes depicted in the movie Avatar. "I decided to approach the mural as an impressionistic interpretation, rather than an animated reproduction; with the layout designed to bring the viewer into the scene, surrounding them with the fantastical look and feel of Pandora. Yet at the same time I wanted to create a composition that would be unique unto it self." Photo luminescent features were added to give the mural a subtle magical quality when the lights are out. 

"This venture has truly inspired me to pursue more projects with the underlying process of collaborating with clients to develop and create unique environments that will enhance their space, and their lives."
