With camera in hand, she loves the opportunity to explore all of the beautiful areas around us and discover the splendor of the local natural landscapes and nature's many gifts.
Painting has given her a new appreciation for the beauty that surrounds us.
After raising three children, she finally indulged a life-long dream and registered for oil painting with Continuing Education at George P. Vanier. Two years later she ventured into watercolour.
Since then, she has done some work with acrylic and dye on silk but her passion is watercolour.
Working with watercolour, she has developed her own easily recognized style that displays the breathtaking scenery of Atlantic Canada and brings out the beauty of surroundings that is often overlooked.
Since 1999, Pat has entered the Annual Juried Show with the Contemporary Art Society of NS. In 1999 she received Honourable Mention for her watercolour of "Blue Rocks, NS" and in 2007 she
won the Louisa Letson Award for "Nuttby House" and Honourable Mention for "Peggy's Cove". In 2014 she received Honorable Mention for "Singing Its Heart Out".
