Some Trees

Some Trees, oil on canvas, 10 x 10

Pat Edwards, an independent artist living in Iowa City, paints in oil and chooses familiar subjects, ranging from intimate backyard views to large canvases of country hillsides. Her smaller images prompt memories of peaceful summer days, and her manner of portraying light and shadow often suggests the mood and time of day. Both large and small works can be read easily from a distance, but they also reward the viewer who studies them at closer range.

Pat earned both her undergraduate and graduate degrees in art from The University of Iowa. In addition to teaching, she also serves as an artist-in-residence through the Iowa Arts Council. Her work was recently featured in a one-person exhibition at the Dubuque Museum of Art and has work included in several corporate collections including Farm Bureau, Hubbell Realty, and Sprint headquarters in Kansas City, Missouri.
