Patricia Peacock-Evans

Patricia Peacock - EvansFor over thirty years, Patsy shared her unique talent for showing us the beauty and mystery of the everyday world through her watercolours and drawings. Although studying art formally in the U.S., she considered herself to be somewhat self-taught because she continued to learn though personal studies, discussions with other artists, and endless hours of practical work in the studio.  Her first sold out solo show was at the Carnegie in 1990, and we are proud to have hosted numerous successful exhibitions of her work since.  She has been awarded Best in Show by the Women’s Art Association of Hamilton and received First Prize at the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibit for watercolour.  Many of her illustrations have been published and her work can be found in numerous private collections.  Her masterful paintings of still life, landscape, or interiors capture qualities beyond the physical subject through their vitality of colour, clarity of light, expressive use of line, purposeful composition, and sweeping movement.  Recognizing the profound fulfillment her art brought to her, she noted,  “I thrive at my drawing board, brush in hand, surrounded by countless shades and tones of watercolour.”
