Patricia portrays traumas and fears as ghost-like entities that reside in our unconscious mind. Her collection presents a series of these forms as veiled, faceless figures embodying mental states of existential awe, revealing those moments of intimacy and authenticity within our mental lives. Each painting is a transformative act of recreating an experience from the past, constructing new meanings, and integrating them with her conscious self so the entity can no longer haunt and damage the present.
Based in: Monterrey, México
In 2013, Patricia completed her Bachelor of Arts in Art Therapy at Emmanuel College, Boston. Her liberal arts studies prepared her in clinical psychology and studio art techniques, majoring in Art Therapy. In 2018, she read a Masters in Art Therapy, in Barcelona, attending mental conditions such as PTSD, depression, anxiety, psychosis, affective, personality and eating disorders.
During her masters, she underwent an exchange program in London at the International Center for Arts Psychotherapies Training (ICAPT) in Mental Health, within the National Health Service (NHS).
While living in Europe she was inspired by the drapery of the Renaissance old masters and the dramatic chiaroscuro of the Baroque, later adapting the oil painting technique of grisaille and colour glazing into contemporary realism. Patricia now works as a full time artist, her knowledge and experience on art psychotherapy practice in mental health, has been the preliminary process leading to the creation of her work.
