Artist Pat Newton

Fueled by curiosity and imagination, Patricia Newton has always been intrigued by the essence of light, luminous color, expression of a face, a warm gentle breeze, the smell of citrus or salty air.

Patricia was influenced by the professional artists and their work, of family members while growing up.

Patricia's style is representational, utilizing a glazing technique by brushing on several thin layers of oil paint that lend a translucent effect and emanate light to her subjects. Her use of color and dimension are reflective of realism.

An award winning artist, Patricia feels that in the end, it is not how well you paint or the number of accolades you gain, but how much you have grown as a result. Moreover, that the gift of creative spirit is celebrated and shared.
