IL Artist of the Year 2014–2015
Faith Patterson paints images that she feels a connection to, that bring her comfort. Her goal is to convey her perception of an actual scene or idea so that others can see what she sees and (hopefully) feel what she feels, when they view her work.
She paints in both traditional and abstract styles, enjoying the process of both. Relying heavily on the palette knife in her painting, she also tends to gravitate to brighter colors. Living in Illinois, her paintings are greatly influenced by her Midwest surroundings.
