Pat Doherty

Novato , Ca

My work takes food as the subject matter for contemporary paintings. I am drawn to simple objects, most notably desserts, and likes to establish good color relationships between light and shadow. My focus is on color, texture, and graphic compositions that are pleasing to the eye.

I have been fortunate to have the opportunity to combine a professional career as a graphic designer with an avocation and passion for the arts. After graduating from Gonzaga University, my artistic evolution has included art director at San Francisco Chamber of Commerce, art director at San Francisco magazine; senior art director at a design firm; and as an independent freelance designer working with clients around the country.

Over the last decade, I have transitioned from the commercial arena into the fine arts.
