Patricia Watwood has exhibited at galleries and institutions worldwide such as Hirschl & Adler and Forbes Gallery in NYC, Galerie Albert Benamou in Paris, and John Pence in San Francisco. Museum shows include the Oglethorpe, Arnot, Joseloff, Bruce, and Dahesh. Artistic success, for Watwood, was born out of natural talent and her diligent studies, having earned an MFA with Honors from New York Academy of Art and studying with Jacob Collins of the Water Street Atelier, and Ted Seth Jacobs at the Ecole Albert Defois in France.
Watwood’s paintings travel through worlds of mythology, allegory, and contemporary human life. Her images are carefully designed to convey the beauty and stillness of the visual world. Philosophically, the paintings reflect the artist’s search for meaning and desire for spiritual connection with both subjects and viewers.
Patricia explains her work by saying, “My figures and portraits are designed to convey the beauty and stillness of the visual world. My paintings travel through worlds of mythology, allegory, and contemporary human life. They reflect my search for meaning, and fulfill my desire for spiritual connection with my subjects and viewers.”
