Patricia Allen - AWS

Patricia A. Allen is an accomplished watercolorist with over a decade’s experience as a full-time working artist.  Allen studied in the Art Department of the University of California at Santa Cruz, and received a BA degree from St. Mary’s College in Moraga California. Her accolades include signature status in the Transparent Watercolor Society of America, and membership in the Watercolor USA Honor Society. Her paintings have won awards in many national shows, and are included in corporate and private collections in the United States and Canada. 

The artist states; “I take delight in reducing landscape to shapes of intuitive color.  My work begins en plein air without intending a realistic rendering, but rather, a very personal response to capture a sense of place.  I then complete the semi-abstract painting in my studio using mixed water media, for interpretations that are visually exciting.  My goal is to paint unique and individual works on paper using stylization and mindful design.  The unpredictability of transparent and opaque water media paint facilitates my creativity, and challenges me with its endless possibilities for expression.
