This biography from the Archives of AskART:

Pat Martin, abstract painter, educator, and curator, born in Los Angeles, California, has made the Delaware Valley her home for over the past 40 years.

Pat attended Pasadena City College, UCLA and the Otis Art Institute in Los Angeles.  She received her B.A. in art and teaching from the California State University at L.A. in 1961.  She has also studied printmaking and encaustic. 

Teaching has been a constant in Pat's life.  She has taught classes in experimental painting techniques at The James A. Michener Museum, Doylestown, PA.  She has curated shows at the Bargeron Gallery, Washington Crossing, PA, and the Riverrun Gallery in Lambertville, NJ. She frequently lectures on modern art and her life in art.

Pasadena City College, Pasadena, California, 1952-1954
University of California, Los Angeles, California, 1954-1955
Otis Art Institute, Los Angeles, California, 1955-1957

Teacher's Credential, 1966         

Artist's Statement:
"In the beginning stages of painting I work as freely as possible - brainstorming on a visual level. I paint as I once did as an Abstract Expressionist; I may pour paint, use gestural drawing, or move paint around with tools other than brushes. I give myself the freedom to pursue impulses. I do not have a plan for the creation that will eventually emerge. The canvas becomes a field of ideas, a panorama of visual imagery. I draw excitement from the potential of the many passages. Many visual ideas are explored during the process. Most of them will be buried in the later revision but a segment or suggestion remains. It is a give and take process. the painting changes radically as it develops in its many layers.

Gradually, the composition and statement distill into a finished work that hopefully, has subtlety, power and resolution. I stop working when there is nothing more that I want to change. The content of the work is the result of my thoughts, feelings, and aesthetic judgement as the work progresses. By working in this way I feel I can arrive at solutions that are more original than if preconceived. "
