Biographical Information:

Patience graduated from the Ontario College of Art and Design in 1948. She chooses materials that are close at hand, including found objects, newspaper, wood, and metal. The found objects are transformed with papier mache and paint into startling manifestations, each emerging from the artist's acknowledgment of the characters of her initial materials. She has incorporates on the wood block medium by combining them with paint, drawing, and ink. She manipulates the surface to created mixed-media works in two and three dimensions. Her two daughters Catherine Morrisey and Robin Hollingdrake have also developed their own artistic practices.
