Drawing & Printmaking
When it comes to drawing, Pat “is in the details”. While always important to capture the whole before the parts, he is always eager to focus in on the intricacies of creating form. His process of mark making is somewhat sculptural with layered crosshatchings built upon paper. Like a professor once told him, “Draw what you see," Pat follows through to the best of his ability. This concept holds true to either a subject in front of him or to an image in his head.
While he might be more controlled when it comes to drawing, Pat loves to experiment with printmaking. The entire process of etching, inking, and running the press along with attempting various techniques is a journey that Pat continues to learn.
