Fine Art, Paintings from early 1960's to today

Exploring Pathways and always abstracting and learning

Pat Mear is a South London artist specialising in Fine Art Painting and was tutored by practicing artists at Croydon College of art for 5 years in 1960s after a significant year of change spent at Dartington College of Art, Devon, immersing herself in their various craft courses, which were available to her as a Warden of the then new residential Devon Centre for Further Education. She took the advice of visiting art teachers and went to College in her home town of Croydon! Pat progressed from early hard-edged paintings and printmaking towards more intuitive and expressive paintings often reflecting her passion for the natural environment, and peaceful co-existence with all life. The artist's works include intuitive 'Paintings in Clouds', 'Pebbles', 'Silent Spring', 'Flowers for ...',fine line Indian ink 'Animal Drawings', an exploration of imaginary landscapes on cork, an environmentally renewable source, and the latest, 'Horizons'




Dear Pat - saw two pieces of work from you in Smoothbean Cafe in Croydon today. Your art caught my attention instantly and I felt a connection between your work and mine. I would love the opportunity to meet up with you over a cup of tea (or coffee). Aged 43 I've finally plucked up the courage to call myself an artist but I feel like I'm right at the start of a long journey. I would love a few wise words : ) Thanks! Instagram account

What makes your art so interesting is not just the imaginative shapes and colour but also that it seems to be progressing through 'stages'. Do these reflect different stages of life? I feel I could go on looking and still finding new attitudes.

Mesmerising!! The pictures seem to connect me to the deepest part of my being. Thank you Pat.
