***** Artist’s Choice Five Star Gold Award!: ImagineFX Magazine

“Patrick’s technique is impeccable…”

Boris Vallejo, Multi award winning artist and author

“Patrick has a fire and a passion in his art that very few have. His understanding of anatomy, design, composition and lighting is excellent. His technique and style are brilliant. But mostly his art is magical…”

Greg  Hildebrandt, Multi award winning artist and author

“An amazing collection of work in the tradition and quite as powerful as the best of Boris, Frazetta, and I would add Howard Pyle. I can’t say enough here—his work reminds me at times of Jose Segrelles, one of the very finest fantasy illustrators ever. Don’t miss this!!”  —Bud Plant on Sci-Fi & Fantasy Oil Painting Techniques.
