Pat Dews, a graduate of The Fashion Institute of Technology, New York City, is a signature member of the American Watercolor Society, the National Watercolor Society, the National Collage Society and the National Association of Women Artists.

Dews creates experimental works in watermedia on paper and canvas. She paints the abstract essence of nature. The shapes and textures of flowers, rocks, water and crumbled walls are translated into richly layered paint surfaces. Collage is often integrated. Dews skillfully juggles organic and geometric forms, transparent and opaque paint - all held together by a basic abstract underlying shape. It is this intricate dance, rendered in strong color and value, which produces her award-winning paintings. When Pat paints, it is a lively, fascinating performance as she shows that, with the simplest tools, less can become more, much more.

Pat is an enthusiastic, popular instructor, teaching workshops internationally. She takes great delight in her students'  many successes.

Pat is the author of Creative Composition & Design (The Painter’s Workshop), 2003, and Creative Discoveries in Watermedia, 1998, published by North Light Books. Her work has appeared in numerous books and publications.

Dews' videos, Designing Great Starts with Texture and Form and Let's Get Started Finishing are available through Cheap Joe's Art Stuff.
