As a young student, I studied pastels and portraiture under Guy Bernardo. After 25 yrs. of doing renderings of Victorian homes all over San Francisco, I returned to painting my favorite subjects, people and animals. More recently, I studied oils with Behrouz Mirdadian. Professional affiliations: Pastel Society of America, Pastel Society of the West Coast (Signature Status) and Golden Gate Marin Artist branch of the National League of American Pen Women.
About My Work
I alternate between using oils or pastels, depending on the subject, the lighting and the mood I wish to convey. Sometimes I will create a study in pastels and then do a full-scale oil of the same subject. Website: www.debbiepatrickart.com Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
