Patricia Bason

  • Born in Brooklyn, New York, I began as a commercial artist chasing deadlines with sketches of summer dresses and silk pajamas.

  • Escaping from Long Island, my love of watercolor surfaced in San Francisco. Teachers at Canada College and Berkeley stirred my excitement with design and shapes.

  • My azaleas landed me in the Stary-Sheets' Gallery and started my relationship with watercolorist Millard Sheets. (I assisted Millard with a mural in Lubbock, Texas.)

  • Another move brought me to Santa Barbara, with its arches, bougainvillea, and the Art Association's outdoor shows.

  • My work is at the Medlin Gallery, Leesburg, Virginia. I'm a member of the Potomac Valley Watercolorists and the Art League. I have studio space at the Reston Art Gallery and Studio.

  • Current work - floral still-life with emphasis on light refractions and reflections in crystal.

  • I love the possibilities for connecting with art talent through the on-line classes. Feel free to send me your questions and suggestions. — Patricia
