Mobile artist, Missy Patrick, is an oil painter whose goal is to bring light from the outside into the inside on canvas. Her creative process begins with the quest to record the essence and ambiance of her subjects and not just to produce a faithful copy. Her subjects are close to home, such as iconic buildings and street scenes of downtown Mobile. She is an outdoor enthusiast with an interest in the seaside and countryside as subjects for her paintings. Missy is often seen in Grand Bay and Baldwin County Alabama along back country roads with sketch book and camera. She says that the expansiveness of sky and fields gives a sense of timelessness and to bring that to a painting is her challenge.
Her work is currently being shown at Ashland Gallery, 2321 Old Shell Road in Midtown Mobile, one of the oldest established galleries in Mobile with fine arts and very unusual crafts, glass work and paintings.
Corporate and public collections of her work include Mobile Museum of Art, Regions Bank, Bank Trust, Merrill Lynch, Mobile Register, University of South Alabama, Mary Abbey Berg Center, Bell South, Department of Pensions & Securities, Mobile, Al. Private collections include many portraits of Mobile citizens both children and adults since portrait painting was a focus for about fourteen years. Urban paintings and landscapes have been collected by Mobilians for the last ten years. Some paintings, mostly landscapes, are in private and corporate collections in the Southeast.
After high school Missy attended Auburn University and University of South Alabama to study art history, printmaking and painting. Continuing education has always been important to Missy; workshops and opportunities from other institutions such as Grand Strand Watercolor School, Myrtle Beach, Louisiana Tech University, Rustin LA. are in her logbook. She is a member of the Mississippi Art Colony, which meets in Utica, Miss. twice a year, to paint with other artists. Mississippi Art Colony was established in 1948.
Missy has lived in Mobile since 1943 and spent fourteen years of her early childhood living on Dog River. Then in 1961 she came to live in Springhill, a historic section of Mobile, a good place to be. She maintains her studio in her home.
