About & Exhibits
Patricia O'Brien's oil portraits and figurative paintings are an expression of humor, surprise, indifference, and the spectrum of emotions we all experience as we travel life's journey. The work tells a story, encouraging the viewer to discover the narrative.
By manipulating the tools available to an artist, experimenting with palette, brush stroke, a personality, with all its feelings and nuances, is coaxed from the canvas.
Her path from electrical engineer to self-taught artist has expanded her interest in experimentation. Her canvas work and wall murals continue to be featured in gallery exhibitions, BSA Decorator Show Houses, TV and print media, and public and private commissions.
