Pat Mountford

Pat is a painter who explores, experiments and plays with mixed media to create colourful and textural outcomes. By working intuitively to produce an image and not being concerned with controlling what the piece should look like, playful experiments provide an incredible creative process. Pat also works on art projects at Christie's hospital.
