About Patricia Pardee

From colorful crayons to colored pencils, I have been drawing for as long as I can remember. Not until last year (2015) did I decide to let my drawings see the light of day. After putting away my pencils for about six years did I pick them up again, finishing about seven in one year. Drawing for me is a slow process. I’ll spend a few hours on an idea and then put it away for a day or two.
During this time I let the drawing tumble around in my head in order to go back to it with fresh ambition. My drawings represent the infinite world of nature, unified with the imagination, creating what I hope is a dream like resonance for the viewer.
