Patricia Dobson (b. 1947)  Artworks >>

A painter of highly realistic Indian pottery still lifes, she works both from photos and from the actual arranged objects. Her oil paintings are characterized by unique shadow effects and surface effects that suggest old, time-worn pottery. Her interest in history began when she spent summers in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains where she was much taken with the sensuality of the smells, colors, and textures. Source AskArt.com She studied art at Foothills College in California and worked as an electrocardiograph technician in California while raising two children and painting in her spare time. In the mid 1980s, she moved to Scottsdale, Arizona and began to focus on native American themes, especially southwestern pottery. Source: Art of the West, May 2004
