At Meraki Art Studios on the Bruce Peninsula


Growing up in a very isolated region of Northern Canada, Patricia developed a close kinship with the natural world as a young child. That kinship formed the basis of her art in which the patterns and textures of nature are turned into graphically striking images.


Painting on birch boards, she allows the physicality of her materials to reveal the innate qualities of the Canadian wilderness that she depicts. Working with a wide array of acrylic paints, gels, pastes, and grounds, Patricia employs a bold colour palette and fluid style to give her landscapes a presence that captures the essence of the wilderness while unveiling a vivid interior world. She recognizes the immense healing power of nature and intends for each painting to serve as a portal for transformation for those viewing her work.


Patricia has shown her work in both Canada and the United States. She also holds a Master of Transpersonal Psychology and is a licensed psychotherapist. Her studio and gallery, Meraki Art Studios, is located in a cedar forest on the beautiful Saugeen (Bruce) Peninsula where she resides and features not only her work, but also the work of her husband, Indigenous artist Mark Nadjiwan.
