Patty Patching moved to this area from the prairies to do her Master’s degree in Fine Arts at the University of Victoria. Afterwards she continued her study of Art by becoming a Registered Art Therapist. She paints because it feels good! In this series of paintings Patty took her inspiration from the flow of life so visible on the West Coast...the ebb and flood of tides, lush vegetation, and the thirst quenching rainfalls.
Being true and present to the muse of the moment, her work celebrates the spontaneity and abundance of nature. She paints with intuition, like a bird builds a nest, one stroke fitting into another until it feels just right!
