Patty Donoghue:


Illustrator/ Fine Art Artist /Occupational Therapist:

"My artwork and paintings are handmade, painted in cheerful colors, with positive energy, and enthusiasm. 'Your work makes me happy' is the most common response of gallery tours. I usually paint pairs, making it easy, for the designer, to solve, wall art needs. This allows a space designer, color match while adding diversity to space. I enjoy experimenting with many mediums and subjects. The tone remains fun and lighthearted. I play with, inks, watercolors, acrylics and oil, with wax mediums, and other texture, mediums. My work is varied, but always bright, lively art, and can don the walls, of living rooms, or children’s spaces. In my youth art was a therapeutic outlet, for me and continued throughout my life. I chose a carrier in therapy because of these experiences. Visual Arts offers evidence-based research, that supports its contribution to mental health, sensory processing as well as anxiety and depression reduction. I like to share the therapeutic value, for others through, gallery shows, classes and work as an occupational therapist. As a member of the art community and Associated Artists of Winston Salem; I support my fellow artists, and promote creativity as a therapeutic mode in well-being."

"My artwork and illustrations have been on display in many Juried exhibitions, public spaces, and solo shows. It has found collectors across the country, and internationally. My work has been used to promote events, and fundraising, for important nonprofit causes, like; leukemia-lymphoma research, women's health, suicide prevention, Multiple Sclerosis Research, Bike MS, Team in Training, Dementia care, aging in place, and breast cancer prevention. My artwork can usually be seen live in a gallery somewhere. You can keep up with my current work, and gallery shows, purchase originals, or view classes. "
