Born (1963) and raised in Adelaide, South Australia, she is the first born from Italian migrant parents. At 18 months, she was a child who was always looking for new things to do. Running out of ideas to keep Patricia busy, her mother reluctantly introduced her to drawing and colouring and in doing so discovered an artist of extraordinary gifting. During her schooling years, she continued to self develop her painting and drawing skills whilst at the same time excel in her academic and music studies. Patricia has since graduated with a Bachelor of Arts (Maths & Statistics major) and Graduate Diploma Computing Science (major Software Engineering), both from the Flinders University of South Australia.
Patricia is a self taught artist, one may say untainted and certainly self inspired. Over the years she developed her artistic skills through a variety of mediums including watercolors, acrylics, pastels and charcoal. However, her favorite medium is oil. She paints a variety of subjects ranging from abstracts to landscapes. Her use of color brings a life to her works that can only be described as beautiful and inspiring.
Despite painting her entire life, it was in 2003 that she decided to launch herself as a professional emerging artist practicing in Canberra, the capital city of Australia nestled in the beautiful Brindabella Mountains. Almost immediately after her launch she successfully scored two back to back solo exhibitions spanning a total of 4 months. Since then she has exhibited many times in Canberra (solo and as a participant), participated in exhibitions in Sydney and New York City. Recently she was published in the “International Contemporary Artists Volume VII”, with exhibitions lined up for 2014 in Italy (Verona in February, Palermo Sicily in March, Rome in April, and more later in 2014).
Her works display without apology her love of God’s Creation in accordance to the Book of Genesis of the Bible. She vibrates that love and the color of creation in a way that is unique to her. She prays that the world will embrace her work, an untainted artist who paints from and with her heart.
