After a successful career as a commercial photographer, Pat relocated to Taos in 1990 and began to experiment with various media to express her own personal vision. The result has been a wide variety of mixed media combining everything from photographic imagery to 3-D construction, sculpture and found objects.
For the last several years, she has concentrated solely on two-dimensional painting.
"I am always reactive, responding to things read or seen and personalizing them with my own terminology. My latest work is more intuitive than ever and when I start a painting, unlike previous constructions, I am comfortable not knowing the outcome--just trusting in the process to carry me along and letting the layers, marks and colors emerge to surprise me."
