Pat works in the disciplines of Asian brush painting and pastel. She enjoys the classical tradition and cultural aspects of Asian brush painting (Sumi-e). When she paints with pastels she feels a more direct connection with color. She studies at the Museum of Fine Arts and with Boston artist Tsun Ming Chmielinski. Pat’s paintings have been exhibited locally at shows in the Melrose Public Library, the Beebe Estate, the Window Art Walk and the Melrose Arts Festival. Her work has also been published in many issues of THE QUARTERLY JOURNAL of the Sumi-e Society of America. Her paintings have appeared in several juried shows at the Sumi-e Society’s Annual Exhibition. She is a member of the Concord Art Association and the Newburyport Art Association and has exhibited in juried shows held by both organizations. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
