About the artist...

Pat’s artistic pursuits include stone sculpture, steel fabrication, fiberglass and bronze casting. He has recently delved into photography and painting on canvas or board, as well. Exploring different media for artistic expression has become a pursuit for Pat that appears to have no limits.

Pat ’s transition from a career as an engineer to fine art sculptor was a continuation of the skills and aesthetics he utilized while designing components for the nuclear, aerospace and semiconductor industries. His fine art sculptures are sometimes very complex, other times deceptively simple, but always created with a designer’s eye for structural integrity and beautiful forms with interesting contours and negative space.
His subject matter spans from abstract to figurative to tongue-in-cheek forms fabricated from found metal objects.
Pat and his wife Charlene have lived in Santa Barbara for many years.
