Pat began taking art lessons as a teenager from Max Carter in Pensacola, Florida and has continued her study of art since then. Her greatest inspiration was her mother, the late Audrey Page, a well-known artist in Pensacola, and a founding member of Quayside Art Gallery. Pat built her studio in 2003, and enjoys working with many art friends in that creative space.
Since retirement, Pat is able to devote much more time to the study of art, through workshops, art classes, and memberships in artist groups. Her passion is watercolor and anything that mixes with water, especially acrylics, gels and pastes to create abstract works of art.
Her series “Old Pensacola Lost (and found)!” is a tribute to the historic buildings of Pensacola that are gone forever, and a celebration of those that have been renovated into beautiful sites for future generations to enjoy. Photographs for many of her paintings were used with permission of the late Judge G. J. Roark.
She is a member of Art Study Club, Artel Gallery and several workshop/critiques groups. She is Past President of the Visual Arts Association of NW Florida. The VAA is an organization that encourages, supports and promotes activities related to the education, encouragement and preservation of the visual arts here in the local NW Florida community.
Her paintings can be seen at Coastal Arts Center of Orange Beach, Perdido Artists Gallery, Saltwater Style in Seville Square, David’s Catfish Restaurant and Apple Market and Artel.
