Sweeney Memorial Public Library, Kilkee, O'Connell Street, Killkee, Co Clare

Patricia is an Irish-born artist who grew up in Dublin, but has travelled extensively, living in London, UK, and North Carolina, SA. Her love of ethnic art of the Celtic tradition and Australian Aborigines has influenced her own artwork, which blends influences from both to create her personal abstract vision. The rich beauty and love she finds in life in the Irish countryside, spills over into the vibrancy and expression of her work.
