I am a visual artist , I create abstract colorful oil paintings and landscapes. I work with a painter knife directly on the blank canvas and my inspiration comes from nature and my imagination. Art for me is the freedom to create with no boundaries, to express the diversity of color from which the human soul is composed.
Spreading color across a canvas is a means of meditation; I connect with my inner self. I need to paint, art has become my way of life."
Patricia has always been creative; she loved to draw from an early age, learned to play piano and guitar, and wrote poetry as a teenager. Her parents gave her the freedom to follow her creative instincts and chase her ever-changing passions. Growing up in Paris, Patricia was also profoundly influenced by her everyday surroundings and even considered pursuing architecture. In1972, the family emigrated from Paris to Israel where, shortly after, Patricia met her husband Boris with whom she has two children and grandchildren.
In 1996 Patricia reignited her passion for painting, sparking a sort of obsession where she found herself painting every free minute she had. She fell for watercolors, aquarelles, and the stories they told on paper. Soon though, she met her true love; oils (it was love at first lesson.) In 2007, the discovery of palette knives in lue of brushes, awakened a signature style in Patricia; one of abstract landscapes animated with texture and positively alive with color.
