Meet Brenda Pate
I was born in Savannah, GA, lived in the Lowcountry until 1970 when I moved to Atlanta, GA. Lived in Atlanta for 30 plus years, traveled the US working in the insurance industry, moved back to the Lowcountry in 2006 and have recently moved to Oxford, FL. It wasn’t until 2015 when I retired THAT…..
Painting emerged in my life. Since that time, I have explored different styles of painting, mediums and textures. Picasso is an inspiration in my artwork not only because of his style painting but also the colors he used.
My Medium is “Mixed” using acrylics, enhanced by various textures. Texture adds depth and character to art. The textures such as eggshells, coffee grounds or paper can be found somewhere in each piece. So, texture is a must!
“Modern Impressions” is my style of painting. It consists of a variety of eclectic, cubism style paintings using bright, acrylic colors. Earlier in my career, I was inspired by flowers, mainly poppies and magnolias. You will find a collection of artwork referred to as Pate’s garden on my website: brendapateart.com.
Commissioned artwork is something we, as artists, appreciate. It is quite an honor to be asked to paint something specific for a customer. It has been my pleasure to paint several commissioned pieces during the last few years.
