Pat Roberie, a native of Louisiana, has a BFA in Studio Art and a MLS in Library Science from LSU. Upon moving to Maryland in 1983, she gave up library work and has devoted her time to being a full time artist.
She is a certified member of the Maryland Society of Portrait Painters, and has done numerous portrait commissions over the past 30 years. She has been a member of Artists’ Gallery since 1996.
Although I occasionally paint other subjects, the human face and body hold the most interest for me as an artist. The following quote by the artist, Juliette Aristides, sums up my feelings on the subject :
“By celebrating a single personality, portraiture provides a humanizing influence in an age of detachment.”
