ABOUT PAT MARGIS
I’ve always been an artist. And currently I’m a professional artist living in California creating fine art oil paintings mostly in the style of Dream Realism.
Early on I developed a deep appreciation for the beauty of landscapes while spending my summers at the Alfred Stieglitz, Georgia O’Keeffe estate, called Oaklawn, in upstate New York.
I started drawing when I was 6 years old and sold my first painting at age 10. Eventually I acquired a fine art degree from Moore College of Art and Design in Philadelphia and spent a great deal of time there producing ceramic sculpture. During that period, I worked in Belgium as a ceramicist and traveled through Europe taking in the fine art scene.
I’ve stayed under the umbrella of art my entire career eventually moving into commercial art as a creative director to pay the bills. It turned out to be great creative fun and I’ve met some outstanding creative people.
