Patricia Wheeler is a mixed media painter. Using a form of imbrication; image/ text arranged so that they overlap, she explores concepts of human interaction with the earth. Her search is spiritual. By conjoining the visual and the verbal, the interrelated symbols encode and transmit meaning. She exhibits widely in the U.S. and teaches painting intensives throughout the U.S. and Canada to include:Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, CMCA, Oregon College of Art & Craft, Sitka Center for Art & Ecology, Oregon, Penland School of Craft, N.C., Vancouver Island Art Workshops, B.C. She lives and works in Deer Isle. Patricia has been selected for numerous artist residencies. She graduated from Rutgers University with high honors in studio art.
