Patrice Lorenz

As an artist I work in several mediums, drawing, painting, printmaking, painting and collage. These different processes inform each other in my work and sometimes exist side by side.

My work is always based in observation. I am both a plein air artist and a studio artist which means I work on location when I can and otherwise in my studio from my sketches and photographs.

My subject matter is the natural world, which sometimes includes the man made elements that become a part of  the landscape.
