"My work is about landscape and nature and how man shapes and interacts with it. I like to get out to a location to observe the ever-changing light. But not just the big vista of mountains, sea and sky, also the small world of rocks, sheughs, streams and fauna."

Pat lives and works in Derry City. He was educated at the Belfast College of Art and The University Of Ulster before going into teaching and becoming Head Of Art at St Peter's High School In Derry. However as demand grew for his work, Pat moved on to concentrate on his career as a professional artist.

He has had a number of solo exhibitions, with examples of his work to be found in Ireland and further afield in London, New York and Boston. 

Pats collections include Derry City Council, Donegal Co.Museum, Government Buildings Stormont, The Civil Service collection: The A.I.B Bank.
