Pat is a mixed media textile artist. She lives on a farm with
a forest garden on one of the fields, where the plants,
birds and insects provide constant inspiration.
Recently, Pat has been working with fellow textile artist,
Maureen Kennaugh, to create a body of work for an
exhibition called, “Florence”, to be held at the Hodgson
Loom Gallery. Unfortunately, Covid has delayed this
exhibition but preparations for it have inspired
experimentation with fusible fabrics and felt. Painting the
felt with pure pigment powders and then using a heat
gun and a fine tipped soldering iron to produce a heavily
textured surface, is a new technique in Pat’s work.
Pat is now concentrating on making artworks inspired
by nature. She is using a Wacom One tablet on which to
paint and draw images that can be digitally altered,
providing her with a means to convey her personal
viewpoint with a modern twist.
