Pat has a background in visual and performing arts. Her early training at The Arts Educational School in England introduced her to the fine arts, music and theatre arts and her first career was as a performer and dance teacher. After taking training at a business school in London, England, she immigrated to Canada and spent many years as an administrator in post-secondary education.

Pat never lost her enthusiasm for the arts. She returned to the visual arts and concentrated on painting in watercolours. She loves the challenge of working in this beautiful medium. In addition to watercolours, she now works in acrylics and oils. A long time resident of New Westminster, Pat and her husband moved to Abbotsford in November 2002.
