Her paintings are held in the Ontario Government Collection, the OCAD Printmaking Collection, the Ontario Archives and the National Archives as well as in numerous private and corporate collections throughout Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Chile, Iceland, and New Zealand.
Canadian painter Scott Pattinson was trained in architecture and urban design (University of Toronto, 2003) and although he did not pursue architecture as an artistic career, his painting subject matter continues an exploration and meditation upon urbanization and tensions between manufactured landscapes and spiritual fulfillment. For Pattinson, painting offered a more immediate creative flexibility and emotional multiplicity that architectural design could not. From his formal training however, he draws upon sculptural elements to define his painting style; often using a wide brush, thick and raucous palette, and actionable approach. A prolific painter, Pattinson’s body of work uniformly evokes the energy of his intense and conscious engagement of the moment where emotion and sensuality are built into mapped geometries of specificity and architectural endorsement.
