Rebecca Patrick began her artist journey in 2004 during her last year of college in her home state of New York. While earning my degree in graphic design, I started experimenting with abstract painting, which a few years later evolved into a true passion with floral impressionism. She expanded her artist career in Austin, TX, where she lived for 5 years before returning to New York state with her husband David.
“I enjoy bringing life to blank walls using luminescent colors and an abundance of texture. I lay the paint on extremely thick with sweeping knife strokes that tattoo fluidity onto the canvas. The paint cures in a way that makes it appear as if it’s still wet, provoking a curiosity to touch it. I create what I create because it’s what I’m passionate about. Every piece is a reflection of my personal style that I would hang in my own home and I love sharing that common passion with others.
“I have always had a fascination with the new life that the season of Spring can bring. I get excited over the bursts of color, and fields of spring flowers covering the landscape. This has inspired my appreciation for the way color and texture play together on the canvas with each stroke of the palette knife. These are the foundations of my artwork. My paintings start with a color idea, then evolve into compositions in which color and fluidity are the primary subjects. To me, art is a synthesis of my personal feelings, the subject and colors that inspire me and my materials and techniques.”
