About Pat Vickers
Pat Vickers is a Canadian artist, originally from Ontario and now living in White Rock, British Columbia.
Her introduction to art started after retirement to the west coast with local classes, leading to drawing and painting workshops in Ontario, British Columbia and Washington State. She works mainly in watercolour but also enjoys the mediums of acrylic and pastel.
Pat is a member of the Vancouver Art Guild, Semiahmoo Arts, the South Surrey and White Rock Art Society and an Active member of the Federation of Canadian Artists. She has been involved in numerous group exhibitions throughout the lower mainland and has had solo showings in Vancouver, Surrey and White Rock.
“To discover a new passion in mid life is one of life’s greatest gifts. Watercolour has captivated me for many reasons…the whiteness and limitless possibilities of a blank sheet of paper, the way the pigments mix with water, the challenge to control the flow, the translucency of the medium, the delight in “lucky accidents”, the discovery of new techniques, the lesson of patience, the joy in learning, and the opportunity to meet, study and paint with a wonderful group of talented people.
I find inspiration in many subjects so my paintings are quite an eclectic mix ranging from landscapes to flowers, fruit, still life and figurative work. Recently my work has become more semi-abstract and I am enjoying working and experimenting in this freer style.”
Pat works out of her studio in White Rock. Her paintings are in private and corporate collections in Canada, Europe and the United States.
Prints of her work are available at fineartamerica.com.
