Pat teaches from her studio and various small residencies. She has a permanent exhibition in her own studio and garden.
Pat's philosophy is that while exercise is good for the body, art is good for your soul. We all have a creative part in our brains, but many don't use it. In this monetary world we have lost sight of the meaning of life. Put the soul back with art, it is so satisfying, and when you are a pile of dust somewhere your art could still be around giving someone pleasure.
Pat directly carves into wood, stone and clay. She doesn't use drawings or maquettes.
Pat started carving in 1980 and enjoyed it so much that she kept going. The subject matter is her immediate environment: four handsome sons, two lovely daughters, and one husband (a cross between Father Christmas and Jesus), ducks, cats, sheep, and the rolling landscape of the Vale of the White Horse.
