Artist Bio

Born in Baltimore, Patricia has been members of the art communities in Washington, DC from 1983-96, Denver from 1996-2001, Arlington from 2001-2006 and in Maryland since 2013.

The Rauschenberg Foundation, Change Inc, awarded a grant for her work 1991; and D. C. Commission on the Arts awarded her Individual Artist Grants, 1993 and 1995; plus three Technical Assistance grants for 1991, 1993 and 1994.

Her painting on paper "Demons without Faces," from a torn paper series was documented in the 1981 catalog "The Eye of May Stevens" for a Washington Women's in the Arts exhibition.  The work was purchased by Joe Hirshhorn at an auction benefiting Washington Project for the Arts, and was bequeathed to the Hirshhorn Museum after his death.

In 1991, The World Bank featured her monotype,  created at Pyramid Atlantic on the cover of the International Women's Month conference in Beijing.  Patricia graduated with an MFA in Experimental Studio from Howard University in 1996, and relocated to Denver, CO.

The Colorado Council for the Arts awarded her a fellowship workshop at Anderson Ranch in a program led by Philip Brookman and Jim Goldberg.   That body of work resulted in a draft book and installation "American Girl War" at Egde Gallery in Denver.  Her over-sized paintinga "Big Women" exhibited at Pirate, in Denver to positive press.

Her large installation "Genetics/Memetics", a site specific work created for Pirate exhibited in Denver in 1998, and again in part at Art-O- Matic, in 2002.  The Washington Post included an image of "Genetics/Memetics" in their coverage of Artomatic on the front page of their Style section.

Last year Patricia retired from Montgomery County Public Libraries and has returned creating art.
