Hi! My name is Rebecca Patrick and I’m a local artist living in Austin, Texas. I began my artist’s journey in 2004 while attending college near where I grew up in upstate New York. While earning my degree in graphic design, I began experimenting with abstract art as a hobby on the side. Through painting, I found a place where it was just me, my music, and my creativity pouring out onto each blank white canvas. It was as if nothing else existed in that moment when my brush hit the canvas. From that point on, I knew I’d never want to stop painting.
-Texture, color and fluidity of the paint. The way the colors and texture play together on the canvas with each stroke brings creativity to my pieces.
- Where I live, my beautiful surroundings, nature.
- Raku pottery has also been a big inspiration for my artwork over the past year. The colors of the pottery that are produced by a fire process are just impressive.
I’ve stretched out from my abstract roots and now specialize in many styles: Abstract, Cityscapes, Figurative, Florals, Landscapes, and Mosaics. I create original pieces of art with acrylic paint on stretched canvas. In addition, I often create custom paintings that have been very popular.
