Pat’s work is inspired by her surroundings, both in her native
Scotland and on her travels. She is particularly drawn to the
seashore and time-worn, wild spaces. She also loves to depict the wild flowers and plants that inhabit those locations.
She works with layers, mirroring those created by time and the
elements. These consist of washes or blocks of colour in paint or
fabric, which are built up gradually and sometimes erased or
obscured. Pat may use several media and techniques to achieve the desired result.
