Fishchild is the website of Artist Mary Patterson
Mary Patterson is a California Artist working in Acrylics, Oils, Watercolers, Ink and Charcoal and most recently, Glitter!
Originally from Alhambra California, she relocated to
San Francisco in the mid 1990's.
Working as a Painter and an Illustrator since 2004, while juggling a day job, she has continually exhibited in Gallerys and alternative art spaces both in Solo shows and group exhibitons.
She has executed several commissioned works for collectors, collaborated with authors, created murals and posters, been a vendor at Alternative Press expo multiple years, participated in several community art fairs and open studios, and has done live art demonstrations.
Since 2008 Mary has taken part-time residence back in her hometown of Alhambra California where she escapes the dank San Francisco "summer" and enjoys the light and the inspiration of Southern California. Living in both
San Franciso and East of Los Angeles invigorates her artistically all year round.
