This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following information was submitted by Jeanne Chisholm:

A resident of Lexington, Kentucky, this Polish-born artist received his Masters Degree (Summa cum Laude) from the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow.  Arabian horses were his first subjects. In the late 80's, he developed a love of the Thoroughbred with racing scenes as well as portrayals of hunting dogs, cattle and wildlife.  The subject of numerous articles and the winner of many awards, Pater and his wife have become U.S. citizens.

Powerful renditions of cows in a landscape, on scent hounds and character jockeys have been landmarks of his style and prizes for sporting art lovers and collectors around the world.  His oils, pastels, gouaches and charcoals can be found in many private and corporate collections including Keeneland Racecourse showcasing the recently commissioned jockeys' series of pastels, at its newly remodeled clubhouse.

From the time he first landed in the United States in 1981, the Polish-born artist has come a long way.  Strong Polish traditions in the breeding of the Arabian horse made Pater initially interested in that as a subject matter.  It wasn't until he moved to Kentucky in 1988 that his interest shifted from Arabian horses to powerful Thoroughbreds.  Paintings depicting racing, foxhunting, sporting dogs, cattle and wildlife followed. Soon after Pater settled in Lexington, he discovered that "The Sporting Life" is lived here as it is nowhere else, and the world of the Thoroughbred has changed his artistic imagination ever since.

Since his 1994 debut as a keynote speaker at the prestigious "Artists of America" show held in Denver by the Rotary Club, he has been a participating artist at their annual exhibition and sale. During the 1996 Summer Olympic Games, Andre, by invitation of the Polish Consulate in Chicago, presented a "Retrospective Exhibit" at the Polish Cultural Center in Atlanta, site of the Olympic Games.

The artistic community has recognized Pater with numerous publications. Spur, Polo, and Canadian Thoroughbred have showcased his works. He has been featured twice in the Equine Images magazine.  The Carlyle Hotel magazine of New York and the British Cheltenham Racecourse publication have featured Pater in their recent issues.
