Quotes from others about the person
“"She is amazingly versatile in a variety of media, from drawing to painting to collage. As a draftsman, Pat shows a free and easy line, one that can capture form with little effort, the line itself a statement in simple elegance. Some of her most important work has been accomplished in the medium of collage. Pat’s collage work is among the best I’ve seen." - Georgia Coopersmith, director of the Longwood Center for the Visual Arts.”
