Collection: Pat Nelson

Pat Nelson was born in Calgary, AB many years ago. She would watch her Mom, a self -taught artist, paint in oils everyday drawing inspiration in how the medium became beauty in nature.

Years later when Pat’s heart took a turn for the worse, she picked up a small water color kit and worked at relaxing while painting her yard birds. She loved it.

Today Pat works mostly with watercolor, but loves to try acrylic and some mixed media.

Mostly Pat works with what ever medium will bring the light that she loves to showcase. The sun that gives us life moving through any image. And birds, her birds she will always come back to.

Pat was a member of the Grande Prairie Guild of Artists from 1996-2007, being active president in 2001. She showed with the guild in 6 shows through out Grande Prairie and Beaverlodge. She has had one individual show at the Beaverlodge Cultural Center and one at the Fairview Cultural center with Diane Gabory. With the Guild she has taken many workshops with Suzanne Sandboe in watercolor, Jim Stokes in watercolor, Diane Gabory in Acrylic, Robertson in watercolor.

With her children in school, Pat was asked to go into a few elementary schools to inspire the children in art and she later became a part of the Prairie Art Gallery’s Art in the Class room project. Having fun with elementary children playing with art.

Pat took a year to teach beginning watercolor at the Creative Art Center in Grande Prairie, also doing a few workshops there including Art with the Wheel. After taking a few years off to raise her children and live an ever changing life, Pat Nelson is back with the Grande Prairie Guild of artist and is acting President as of October 2020.
