About the artist, Patsy Pollard Wilkinson:
Beginning with crayons and working her way up to oils, Patsy’s love of art has spanned a lifetime. She attended Stratford College where she was an art major. During college, she studied art in Florence and traveled extensively. Upon graduation, she taught art classes in the public school system for five years. Afterwards she owned The Flower Pot for thirteen years where her thoughts were directed at creating living landscapes. Over the years she packed away many landscapes in her head, just waiting for the time to put them on a canvas. A mere forty-six years after graduation and after closing her shop, she finally had time to pick up her brushes and put them to use.
Patsy’s images are arranged on the canvas using the same artistic devices she employed to arrange flowers. She particularly enjoys capturing local places of interest, areas of travel, and vanishing vistas.
