We are thrilled to introduce you to Patricia, who is sitting on the judging panel for this years Mersea Amateur Photography Awards.
Patricia Forrest is an established artist working predominantly with oils and mixed media. Graduating with a Degree in Fine Art from Central St Martins in 1999, her earlier work explored the theme of ‘structures’, both abstract and metaphoric, using oil pigments on a large-scale.
From 2016, she started combining photography and painting through digital media, a technique she continues to evolve.
More recent work sees a return to painting, inspired by the seascapes of the Essex and Suffolk coasts, depicting the impact of changing light and weather. These interpretations shift between literal realism and abstract construction.
Patricia works on commissions for corporate and private collections. If you want to see any more of her work or discuss a commission, then you can head over to her website or you’ll find her over on Instagram @patriciaforrestart.
