I take great pleasure in painting reality in a way that makes it obscure, so as to surprise the observer when they find out what the true inspiration is behind the painting. That “A-ha!” moment fills me with a sense of accomplishment because it encourages the observer to see the object/theme of my art in a brand new way.
I use people and places as the inspiration behind many of my paintings. I love to interpret a personality through a painting because I feel it helps me to get to know the person better while bringing joy to his or her life. I also love to paint a place, whether a country or a city, as a way of processing my time there. My art is a way of putting my emotions, feelings, experiences, and memories on canvas. It serves as a cathartic and therapeutic process that will hopefully translate into touching the lives of people who come into contact with it.

In 2005, Patricia's artistic flair took a new direction. Seeing the beauty in many "retro" pieces of jewelry she had collected over the years, Patricia turned her talent to re-inventing them into "One of a Kind" pieces of Body Art Jewelry. These unusual designs have quickly become popular, and today, Patricia's unique jewelry is sought after.
Patricia combines Antique and Retro pieces, with Swarovski crystals, chains, beads and stones, turning them into fabulous and "Funky", new creations!Over the years, Patricia has collected piano keys, strings,parts of the action of the piano, and created a whole "NEW" line,Piano Key Jewelry!!! These one of a kind pieces are simply amazing,and some are currently being shown in Artisan shops throughout the Lower Mainland!!!
Each piece is lovingly designed in a way that respects its history!!!
