Patrick was born in Surrey in 1955 and had an interest in art from an early age. In 1992 he moved with his family to Worthing and has found the beautiful countryside and coastal areas very inspirational to his painting. He is self taught in oils but since moving to Sussex has taken classes in watercolours, pastels and acrylics. For a number of years he has been a member of Arundel Art Society and in recent years has exhibited his wildlife paintings at the Marwell International Wildlife Art Society exhibitions in Hampshire. A permanent display of his smaller landscape paintings can be seen at Swanbourne Lodge Café at the Swanbourne lake in Mill Road Arundel.
