“To me, art is the gateway between reality and dreams. When I look at a piece of art, I am transported from my current state of being to the place or thing the artist has depicted.” Patrick was born and raised in Southern California in the beach community of Torrance. He is passionate about experimenting in many different mediums, leading to breakthroughs that please his eye and senses. Drawing upon the beauty he found while living in the Caribbean, his compositions usually revolve around the bright and bold cerulean ocean. For the 2016 Triple Crown of Surfing, Patrick was fortunate enough to have one of his collage works on mirror chosen as the featured art. When not in the ocean playing in the waves, you will find him in the studio painting.
