In 2002, I took a month-long artist’s retreat deep in the woods of British Columbia, living in a tent on a mountainside with no electricity or running water.  I intended to focus on photography, which had been a passion of mine for over a decade, but when my camera broke on the first day there, I purchased some paints and started painting in earnest.

When using oils, I prefer to paint with palette knives.  I have also been experimenting a great deal with encaustic/mixed media paintings for the past several years.  Both methods afford a freedom with the medium that is in concert with the loose interpretations and imaginings of nature I create.  Often the images themselves are secondary, assembling color being my primary focus.

Oh… And when I am not painting, I am a high school math teacher.

Patricia Busso’s work is in corporate and private collections both in the U.S. and internationally.
