Patricia Isabella Byron is an abstract artist & writer/poet who spent many years living in Turkey and Iran. During her travels through the Middle East and Europe, the artist became so captivated by the natural beauty and historical sites, that she was compelled to paint and write about them.
The communication that she has through her abstract paintings is a spiritual motivation. Her subject matters are a mood-evoking interplay of emotions and symbolic reflections.
While living in Tehran, Byron attended Tehran University, School of Persian Studies & Culture, and was an active member and writer of the British Library Ladies group. She has also received two Editors Choice Awards from the International Library of Poetry.
Patricia Byron is a faculty member at Crealde School of Art, where she was appointed as a Fellowship Student and Studio Artist. She has been a volunteer for the ABCs Art Program at the Coalition for the Homeless, art instructor at the Boys and Girls Club of Central Florida, and member of the Women's Caucus for Art.
The artist is a descendant of Lord Byron, and granddaughter of acclaimed Honduran-Italian writer & composer Fernando Ferrari.
'As an artist, I strive to interpret my visions of tranquility and harmony from brush to canvas. I am intrigued with the movement and dimensional complexity that can form with paint. Through my paintings, I aim to release a lyrical-almost poetic introspective journey where the visual meets the emotional. Ultimately, I caress the treasure of memories into my work for the viewer to experience...
Overall, I am grateful to have experienced my travels and encounters with diverse cultures, for without them I would not have emerged as an artist or writer.'
Patricia Byron joined Fine Art America on April 5th, 2007.
