Patricia L. Caulfield - Bio
Clouds have always been a fascination for Patricia L. Caulfield. By constantly studying their form, movement and light Patricia creates atmospheric paintings without using photographic reference. Her focus is on abstract art that includes both land and seascapes. Always drawing from the power of nature, her vision of depth and space is brought to the forefront in her work. Patricia works in mixed media on birch cradleboard and paper using acrylic paint, collage, oil pastel, oil sticks, pencil and vine charcoal along with sanding and distressing.
Patricia is a graduate of the Maryland Institute College of Art and completed the Art2Life Creative Visionary Program in 2020. She is a member of Creative York and The York Art Association, both in York, PA and the Harrisburg Art Association in Harrisburg, PA. She has shown and sold her work in all locations. She is the recipient of the Rottler Award of Excellence at the York Art Association, June 2021. She also received the Award of Excellence at the York Art Association’s 50th Annual Juried Show in October 2021. Branching out into public art, Patricia’s seascape group of four paintings are a part of the permanent collection at the Wellspan York Campus Cancer Center.
