Pat Hall was born in Kent, England in 1963. She completed her Honours Degree in Graphic Design at Brighton University in 1985 before working as a designer in London. After immigrating to Australia in 1991 she worked as an illustrator for many years and now paints from her home studio in Mitchelton.
Pat is a keen gardener and her paintings are inspired by the dazzling sunlight of Australian gardens and bushland. Pat won ‘Best Watercolour’ in The Rotary Art Spectacular 2016, and ‘Highly Commended’ in 2015. She has also won many prizes at The Royal Queensland Show (including 5 first prizes) and 3 at The Brookfield Show (including 1 first prize and 1 ‘Best in Show’) Pat has had 5 solo exhibitions; the most recent ‘Element of Chance’ 2016.
Pat floods her stretched paper canvases with colour before sealing them in a UV stabilised and waterproof coating. The images remain vibrant and accessible without being hidden behind glass; breathing new life into the medium.
