A native of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, Patricia Gordon acquired a respect for her natural surroundings at an early age. She received her B.A. degree in Fine Arts from the College of William and Mary where she majored in art history. Residing now in New Hampshire, Patricia draws inspiration from the beauty around her. Her landscapes are characterized by a soft, ethereal quality, reflecting the peaceful essence of the areas she chooses to represent.
“In my work, there is an expression of the tranquility and timeless appeal sensed in the landscape around me. Inspired by the visions of tonalist painters, both contemporary and historical, I follow an intuitive process to move beyond the physical manifestation of reality and portray the emotion that naturally emanates from the rural landscape for me. The resulting painting is a journey into a deeper exploration of the spiritual connection I feel for my environment, where even the simplest of scenes becomes imbued with poetry and grace.” P.S. Gordon
