Abstracted view of mountains and sky. Patricia says she was inspired by the height from the mountaintop where the clouds intermingle with the cliffs. "The horizon line no longer exists and the environment becomes allusive and surreal," she explains. Painted in many layers. At the bottom, Patricia mixed sand from the Sahara Desert into the paint, and the sky was rendered with dark layers of blue that were then layered with clouds in light and white hues.
Patricia’s soft and painterly scenes are a result of the artist’s careful selection of materials. Her layers of paint, whether in oil or acrylic, are thoughtfully premeditated depending on the effect she seeks to create. Patricia is also highly conscious of the tools she uses, averaging forty brushes per painting, in addition to using paper towels and found materials to manipulate the paint. Her subject matter is a reflection of the world around her. “I create what moves me on any given day,” says Patricia. “It is a joint process between me and the universe. I let the world around me speak through my canvas.”
