About the Artist

Patricia Schwimmer (Canadian, b. 20th Century)

After many years in the corporate world, Patricia earned her Master’s Degree in Transpersonal Psychology and an additional certification for Expressive Arts Therapy. She has also studied with acclaimed abstract artists Sally Cooper, Audrey Phillips, and Nicholas Wilton. Patricia has led workshops in creative painting at various venues including The Georgian Bay School of Arts and Chautauqua Institute. A Toronto native, childhood vacations were always spent at the beach. A recent move to Palm Beach, FL fulfills a lifelong desire to live and work near the water. The natural beauty of the ocean and its surroundings have had a major impact on Schwimmer’s color palette and expressive brushwork. Her paintings have been featured in numerous publications worldwide including Michelle Cassou and Stewart Cubley’s book, "Life, Paint, and Passion." She was recently featured at Art Palm Beach International, the 2016 Designers' Show House in WPB, and in Nantucket Island through JF Art Gallery. Take a peek at the ocean-front condominium featured in the October 2016 issue of "Palm Beach Illustrated" to see an example of the beautiful spaces where her artwork is mentioned.
