Patrice’s extensive professional background working and training in the realms of visual arts, education and health is evident in work that is life-deep, reflecting and exploring the human condition and spirit. In the manner of the symbolists Patrice is interested in the psyche, relationships, culture and identity, restaging known narratives through a feminist lens using the sensuous materiality of paint and an intuitive process.  Patrice paints her connection to people and places resulting in work soaked in feeling and mood. Patrice’s expressive painterly work is exhibited regularly, also frequently selected as a finalist in art awards, and accrued in private collections.
