Patricia Smart was born in Sydney in 1966. She knew she wanted to be an artist by age 10 and motivated by her love of the Australian Bush moved to the Blue mountains as a young adult where she still resides today. Patricia is a diverse artist in style, subject and medium. She draws inspiration from nature, science, and whimsy. She was formally trained in Fine arts at Meadowbank TAFE and Visual Arts at Sydney College of the Arts. In her own business, she has painted murals nationally and internationally, since 1989. Her studio practice includes painting, printmaking, and most recently ceramics. Patricia has won many awards and scholarships for her art and most recently was invited to represented Australia in China where she painted a mural alongside 90 other international artists at Hua Quan Artist Village in 2017. In 2011 she traveled to Italy to learn Fresco painting. She has work in the printmaking collection at the Art Gallery of NSW and The National Gallery of Australia.
