April Artist of the Month – Pat Gardiner
“Creativity is an intelligent mind having fun”
Pat Gardiner grew up on the Virginia coast . She studied art at East Carolina University, has taken many workshops and has taught art in domestic applications (painting on furniture, fabrics, glassware,etc.). She loves to render in pen and ink and colored pencil. Painting in acrylic is yet another creative love. Her acrylics are most always painted in a loose, impressionistic style with a touch of realism. Her keen design and color sense, combined with a touch of spontaneity, enhance each of her paintings. Pat has survived three cancers, and with each one has learned an even greater appreciation for life and beauty that can be seen in her paintings.
