Patricia Cotterill was born in Scotland and and studied Graphic Arts at the Lincoln College of Art in England before working in graphic Design and becoming the Display Manager for a chain of stores for Southern England.
After raising two daughters while residing in Europe, the Middle East, Asia, and various states in the USA, Patricia now calls Asheville, NC home with her husband. Living in different countries has influenced her art, whether in subject matter, technique or style. Shape, color, and light are transformed onto canvas giving a glimpse into scenes of everyday life, whether it be a still life, animal, or figurative.
Patricia’s work was selected to be a part of the set paintings for the hit NBC television show Parenthood, and also featured in Art for the Traditional Home, part of The Handmade Home book series. In 2015, four of her paintings were purchased for the HGTV series Urban Oasis, and were showcased in their home renovation project in West Asheville.
Patricia's works in oils can be seen at her Studio in the River Arts District, Asheville, NC and at various other art galleries around Asheville and neighboring Black Mountain.
