Patrick has a fire and a passion in his art that very few have. His understanding of anatomy, design, composition and lighting is excellent. His technique and style are brilliant. But mostly his art is magical...’
Luscious color! That’s the first thing I think when I see one of Patrick’s paintings. Then my eyes roam around and see the silky skin of the characters, the intricate design work of their ornamentation...’
Patrick is a phenomenal artist, equally versed in both traditional and digital methods... as well as a wonderful teacher.’
