Pat has enjoyed art expression since childhood having been greatly influenced by her grandmother - an art teacher who encouraged Pat to develop her own unique style.
Her process with clay has evolved to building slab work, drawing the image onto the clay surface for carving, and then applying the glazes and slips. Raku is Pat’s favorite firing method; creating uniquely different pieces with a little mystery or surprise each time. The oceans’ inhabitants influence Pat’s art - her favorite creatures to depict are the turtle, star fish, and fish in general. Her desire is to share her joy of the earth’s beauty and life with others through her art.
