Biography ~ Patricia Pinsk
My children's and editorial illustrations are multi-media work that are primarily in watercolour, ink, digital photography, coloured pencil and collage. I enjoy the creative process of working traditionally (e.g. drawing, painting) and then further developing an image digitally. Through the digital process I add multiple layers of texture, colour and photography, and then flatten it all into one final image.
I hold a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Vancouver’s Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design (now called Emily Carr University of Art and Design), as well as a Certificate in New Media from Vancouver Film School. I have studied at Pilchuck Glass School (WA, USA), as well as numerous other art workshops in Canada and the USA.
Previously, I exhibited and sold my art (mainly glass) in numerous gallery shops across the country, such as the Art Gallery of Ontario’s gift shop, The Alberta Craft Council Gallery, and the Manitoba Craft Council Gallery. As well, I have sold my photography to such publications as Vancouver’s The Georgia Straight, and have sold many of my artworks to private patrons.
