About The Artist

Patricia Romeo is a painter, printmaker and mixed media artist. She studied studio art at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts University between 2010 and 2016 subsequently earning a Master of Arts in Teaching in Art Education and a Post Baccalaureate Certificate in Studio Art. Her art is primarily developed through process, intuition and play with the simple goal of creating a pleasing composition of shapes and colors.

ARTIST STATEMENT

Making art is autobiographical, and I find no greater pleasure than having created something with my hands. Working with Mother Nature as my muse, I focus on my surroundings and think about the numerous ways of translating what I see outside my window onto a two dimensional surface. I like to study the shapes, patterns and textures of trees, plants, and flowers and then translate them into a personal vocuabulary for my artwork. I primarily create in three mediums; relief printmaking, oil paint, and collage, and my art develops through process. Upon completion of a painting or a relief print, my artwork usually represents my idea of the natural world.
