After graduating from Tyler School of Art in 2009 Patrick focused on getting a body of work together. Over the course of about 4 years he painted as much as he could in order to establish a professional body of work. He entered into a number of juried art shows and won some awards along the way. He had combined his love for oil painting and his fondness for illustration into a style all his own. With a little help from his camera he was on his way.
Patrick had grew up in suburbs but always had enjoyed the city, whether it be Philadelphia or New York. Patrick wanted to show the parts of the city that most people take for granted. While not all of his paintings depict the city life there is a constant theme of aged buildings and worn down streets that is almost always present. He does not wish to depict the many landmarks scattered across Philadelphia and New York, these spots have been on display countless times. Although the scenes he paints are mostly of Philadelphia they could be located almost anywhere.
For the last 5 years Patrick has traveled as far south as Virginia and as far west as Pittsburgh to display his work. He has been fortunate to be a part of the Rittenhouse Square Fine Art show in center city Philadelphia for the past 6 years. Patrick hopes to continue to evolve as an artist and produce work that he has put all of his thought and effort into.
