About Patricia Chandler

Patricia Chandler ~ ” Sacred Heart Church and Mellen Street at Night” ~ Oil on Linen Canvas


Pat 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 in Rochester, NY.  After several years working in the commercial field creating illustrations, she moved to Minnesota, where she renewed her interest in printmaking, moving back to Maine in 1971.

When asked about her career as an artist and art educator, Pat replied, “My imagery, though based on landscape, evolved from realism into expressionism and abstraction. Part of that transition was due to more experimental attitudes toward tools and materials. Most of my more recent work is a combination of those styles; however, there remains a love of realism.”

Having lived in Portland, ME for the past three years, “my work includes realistic images of Portland that have a very personal flavor. Portland has its own color, its history and warmth, which irresistibly gets expressed in realism.

Previous work was done while living on the coast for close to twenty years, and then in the western woods for 14 years. It is all landscape of one variety or another, including the Portland paintings. The variety of Maine’s natural beauty is sufficient for many lifetimes of an artist.”
