Patrice Robinson was born in Queens, and works full-time in NYC. She’s a self- taught visual artist.
Patrice’s primary focus is in portraiture. Also, her primary medium is oil paint, which she uses on wood panels. When painting a portrait, Patrice likes to work in loose layers, building up the painting slowly, until she’s ready to define and highlight key areas. She is influenced by many artists who have and do work in contemporary realism or surrealism, for example, René Magritte, Lena Danya, Alyssa Monks, Kehinde Wiley and Kerry James Marshall.
She also continues to gain inspiration from her personal experiences. http://www.patdowart.com
