Patricia Twist has drawn and painted all her life and is largely self-taught. She finds her inspiration in nature, photography, memory and imagination, and uses gouache to create her landscapes, seascapes, figurative and wildlife paintings.
Pat has twice been short-listed for the Daily Mail Not The Turner Prize, a national competition launched in 2003 to celebrate representational painting. On each occasion, her painting – The Misty Mountains in 2003, Wild Waters in 2004 – was selected from 10,000 entries to join the work of 400 finalists in an exhibition at London’s prestigious Mall Galleries.
She has her own website at www.users.waitrose.com/~pattwist
