A gifted artist and art instructor, Pat Chandler’s career as a commercial and fine artist spans more than five decades. She received her BFA in Illustration from Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, RI and MFA in Painting and Printmaking from Rochester Institute of Technology, Rochester, New York.

After several years working in the commercial field creating illustrations Pat moved to Minnesota, where she renewed her interest in printmaking, moving back to Maine in 1971, becoming an Adjunct Professor of Painting and Drawing at the University of Maine from 2005 to 2014.

When asked about her creative process and style Pat said, “I have always retained an interest in various forms of realism persisting in contemporary 20th and 21st century art. In all of my paintings there is a continuum that began in realism and overtime evolved into more expressionistic, abstracted works. In my paintings realism sometimes asserts itself as a meditative study of sorts.

My creative process and production inevitably refer to my geographic roots. The environment was essential to my development as a young child. Maine’s more remote regions inspired many of my paintings to the same degree that its landscapes informed my early life.

My imagery, though based on landscape, evolved from realism into expressionism and abstraction. Part of that transition was due to more experimental attitudes towards tools and materials. Most of my more recent work is a combination of those styles; however, there remains a love of realism.”
