Pat Stacy Pat Stacy would say “The tip of my brush is the tip of my soul.” Springing from an interior well, her work contains symbols attesting to a belief in life beyond what she sees and gratitude for life itself. Several of the symbols she uses are uniquely hers, while others are taken from a variety of cultures. Pat works in acrylic and mixed media on canvas and wood. In 2008, Pat was at a crossroads in her life due to ill health when she picked up a brush, immersed herself in color daily, and found her passion for art. A native Arizonan, Pat’s work reflects her love of her Arizona heritage. Her unique Quadruvium series unites wood panels, heavy texture, fine line work, and her symbols. Her latest work uses metal acrylics with patinas and pastels to create truly unique work on canvas and wood. Pat is a juried, award-winning artist whose work may be seen in galleries in Arizona, Virginia, and Utah, as well as in the Arizona Fine Art Expo in the spring of each year. patstacy.com 11
