Patrick was born in West Palm Beach, Florida when it still had a small town flavor surrounded by tropical and ocean settings. Numerous visits since childhood to the Florida Keys and years of diving and sailing the Florida coast and Bahamas along with having a home in the Ocala National Forest have had a strong and lasting influence on the subjects he chooses to paint.
From beautiful cloud formations at sunset, to a quaint cottage in the Keys, to tranquil back country landscapes, to soothing seascapes, he captures a feeling that relates to the beauty around us which is often missed in the fast paced world we live in.
His art journey began in childhood with an irresistible desire to draw. This was followed by color pencil work which eventually led to oil paints. The use of a limited palette of six colors helps create more unity within his paintings. By painting subjects he is familiar with and that strike an inner emotion , he feels he can be more honest with his work.
Patrick has been sharing with others what others have shared with him and teaching those with desire to paint for over 10 years. He currently lives in New Smyrna Beach and teaches classes at The Artist Workshop.
