Patrick has been primarily inspired by surrealism and also have a general interest in depicting land and seascapes of the island and else where. As a local artist Patrick paints scenes of heritage from around the Island in mixed media as well as off island scenes. Artist's statement:- I have spent the bulk of my time in Jersey and regard myself - through swimming, surfing and observing the sea in its different states - as a sea-man though having been born in Paris In 1958. I didn't attend Art college. My work centres around sea and landscapes from here and away and I am particularly interested in wave forms and the play of light on water in my paintings.
