Patrick began painting at an early age and received recognition and awards for his work from the moment he started school. He studied fine art at Augusta College under the tutelage of such influential artists as Jim Rosen and Janice Williams, and was fortunate to have been accepted to their Italian study abroad program. Later, as Perparator for the Morris Museum of Art, Patrick became inspired by many of the great Southern masters.
After his first solo show in 2007, and after a near sell-out show in 2010, Patrick's work can now be found in galleries and corporate collections all over the country. Patrick's work has been used in TV and film, and recent acquisitions include the DC, Houston, LA, and Atlanta headquarters of Servcorp International, the 2012 HGTV Green Home, and the personal collection of actress/comedian Melissa McCarthy.
