About The Artist

Since graduating from Art School in 1988 David Patterson has been continually exploring and painting on a regular basis. He has managed to create a large body of work and has developed a unique style working with sand and oils. He creates a texture that captures the light and brings out the form with even greater depth. His colourful and energetic paintings reveal the inner workings of nature and  the  natural forces at work.  His tree’s reach for the sky and the plants spread & wrap around each other in a harmonious intimacy. Flora & fauna in the dance of life revealing the continual energy that’s always present. David's style continues to evolve but his work always reflects nature and the natural forces in some way. He has had many showings of his art in numerous galleries & festivals. You will find his works in private and corporate collections throughout B.C. and Alberta.


“More than ever it’s important to show the real beauty of life and nature. The environment is taken for granted and the beauty seems to be missed. We need to remind ourselves of the natural forces out there and the harmony that needs to take place in order for this world to survive. From the very abstract, down to the simplest of forms, nature is always an ever-present element in my work. Painting for me is the blending of the outside world with the inside world and expressing those feelings onto a 2 dimensional surface. Currently I've been working on landscapes mainly drawn from memory. Places that give me a sense of familiarity. Not only in look, but also in feel. I use colour, form & symmetry to remind us of the life that exists within our surroundings. I like to over exemplify the balance & symmetry that happens naturally which is not always apparent to the naked eye." "I hope some of these paintings instills memories of places that you may have been. In body and in spirit."

His home and studio is located in White Rock/South Surrey.
