Patrick was born and raised in Southern California in the beach community of Torrance. There he attended kindergarten through high school. His college years were spent at Loyola Marymount University in West Los Angeles, where he majored in Fine Art and Graphic Design, while also playing for the Men's Division I Soccer team. After a year working as an Art Director at an advertising agency in Los Angeles, and then escaping it all for another year in the Virgin Islands, Patrick started his path as a full-time fine artist. After a few years of building up his clientele, he made the move from Southern California to the North Shore of Oahu, where he immersed himself in the source of his inspiration.
Focusing his art on tropical seascapes, waves, and the creatures that swim around the islands, Patrick has developed many styles to interpret his visions. He works with mediums such as acrylic, oil, watercolor, coffee, charcoal, and photo paper, on surfaces such as canvas, wood, mirror, paper, and walls. He is always pushing his art in new directions to learn new mediums to visually express himself. When an idea or vision strikes, Patrick will make a couple small sketches to get the art process started, choose which mediums to work in, then dive in pushing his talents to create something unique and fun.
For the 2016 Vans Triple Crown of Surfing, Patrick was fortunate enough to have one of his collage works on mirror chosen as the featured art. The image was licensed to be produced on shirts, hats, boardshorts, as well as large window displays and during the live broadcast during the surf contests.
Patrick currently resides in Hawaii with his family. When not in the ocean playing in the waves on the North Shore of Oahu, you will find him in the studio painting ideas that come to mind or bringing to canvas an idea that someone has commissioned.
