Patricia Mc Ateer - Artist

Patricia Mc Ateer - ArtistPatricia is from Dundalk and is now living in Omeath, Co. Louth. Her work is contemporary visual in acrylic and mixed media and her use of colour is essential, not only in the paintings but because colour, movement and light remind her that legends and mythology lay the foundation for cultures very different from us and yet at the same time very similar to us on some inner level.
