Biography and Personal Life

I was born at a young age…..

A figurative artist by nature, Patrick’s larger than life painting style illustrates truth and emotion.  Revealed to us if only for a moment, his subjects’ contentment, lust, joy, and fear suspend on canvas.  Ranging from Abstract to Photoreal, each character compels the viewer to learn their story.

Patrick spends his days in a digital jungle of pixels and command lines working as a Visual Effects Artist for Hollywood’s blockbuster films. He works as a Senior Technical Director for leading visual effects company Sony Pictures Imageworks in their new office in Albuquerque New Mexico, contributing to such films as “G-Force”, “Speed Racer”, “I am Legend”, and “Superman Returns”. He holds a degree in Architecture and Fine Art and has been a professor at several colleges including New York University.

On nights and weekends he looks forward to an escape to the natural, simplistic world of sable brushes, pigmented oils and stretched canvas.. For years he has been active in the Los Angeles art community and participated in gallery shows throughout the area including the Downtown Artwalk, Noho Gallery district and Bergamot Station. His work can be seen in various locations across Southern California and New Mexico (and at almost any movie theatre across the country).
