About Patricia Wheeler
Biography - About Patricia Wheeler

Patricia Wheeler lives on a small island in Maine in the Penobscot Bay Region. She is a mixed media painter, a feminist and one who believes that each of us has a purpose in life which is the song that is in our heart. Her teaching practice is about releasing that song in her students, freeing them from old voices that inhibit the joy of painting. Using an abstract vocabulary she looks for intersections between unrelated elements within a painting.

She exhibits widely throughout the U.S. And teaches regularly in Oregon at  Oregon College of Art & Crafts & the Sitka Center for Art & Ecology, in Wisconsin at the Peninsula Art School, Door County,  in Maine at the Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, the Center for Maine Contemporary Art & Chapter Two Gallery. She has been selected for numerous artist residencies. Pat graduated from Rutgers University with high honors in studio art.

This winter, Patricia was an artist in residence for 3-1/2 months  at the Sitka Center for Art and Ecology, a life changing experience at the confluence of the Salmon River estuary and the Pacific Ocean at Cascade Head. There she also participated in the OSU Reflections program, a collaboration between art & science.
