About Patricia



Patricia's journey into the art world started at a very young age in Jersey City, NJ, with endless drawings on walls and coloring her patent leather shoes, much to her mother's frustration. She moved to Colombia as a young child, an experience that would influence her and her work once back in the states.


Patricia is a graduate from the School of Visual Arts in New York City.  She minored in Art Therapy and was able to see first hand the power of art in healing through internships in Manhattan and Jersey City, NJ.


After acquiring her B.F.A. in illustration, she moved to the Northwest. Further education in the graphic arts led to job opportunities for Eddie Bauer Corporate and Garden Botanika Corporate.

She completed the EDGE Program through the Artist Trust as she continues to grow in the local arts community.


She is currently on the Board of Trustees with the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art.

“My blank canvases are playgrounds where my subconscious and creativity meet. Like children at recess, I never know if they will get along”
