About Trish


Welcome to my web site featuring some of my work. I have been an artist all my life beginning with water color, graphic design, and photography, then adding acrylic paint for more texturized works – something that cannot be created using technology. Besides years of developing my own style, I have a BA, MS (tech), and MFA. I continue to explore art by exploring what other artists are working on. Traveling to other countries provides inspiration for much of my work. I was greatly influenced by trips to Mexico as a young child. I see patterns and designs, images in my head, that I try to create on canvas or paper. In one of the last conversations with my Mom, she talked about patterns she would see when she closed her eyes. This apparently is a trait I inherited from her. I am also influenced by my environment and my love of water, trees, and flowers. I live near the beach and spend some part of every day there. Often I take the images of what I see and transfer it to canvas – the way I see it. I have lived near the east, south and west coast for most of my life, usually within walking distance.

    Hi Trish
    Thanks for following my blog! I love your way of using the paint thickly and the way you take care with the brush strokes direction. Very nice and makes me happy.

  25. Thank you for checking out my work… I love your beautiful landscapes – they seem so peaceful.

  26. Looking at your paintings, especially the style of them: peaceful and lyrical, but very bold. Reminds me of some of the expressionists. Keep up the passion!

  27. Thank you, Brett. I do find myself getting lost in painting and that brings such peace. I enjoyed your voice on your blog, and found some passages that were quite beautiful, such as “…hear prayers in the rustled kisses of brittle leaves in cold wind, see stories in lines traced along an old cashierโ€™s palm.”

  28. Thanks so much! I really appreciate it when people like specific things about things I write. Some sentences come out like a breath, like that one, but others are an agonizing work of chisel and polish. I find myself lost in writing, too. Looking forward to seeing more of your paintings!

  29. You do have a nice style of writing … hope to read more (-:

I used to spend hours -well minutes- checking out my own kalidescope when i closed my eyes and didn’t know anyone else could see like this! I wonder if my mom can see them too!
