Patrick Gilmore Patrick is a self-taught artist. Having first discovered a love of painting when he was much younger, he had not picked up a paint brush for 20 years, instead focusing on life and his legal career. During the global pandemic Patrick reflected on the world around him and rekindled his love of painting. Patrick was born in Cumbria in the United Kingdom. Living close to the Lake District has influenced him greatly. He finds inspiration in the rise of mountains and tranquillity in the gentle and soothing flow of reflective water. Patrick has continued to be influenced by the landscapes around him and has a particular reverence for snow and for the cold winter moons. Patrick is focusing on two collections at this time, ‘ Aurora ’ and ‘ Mountain waves ‘ . Aurora demonstrates his love for icy snow-covered landscapes made vibrant by the colours and expression of the auroras he creates. Mountain waves are a more abstract interpretation of Patrick ’ s love for the lake district and the fond memories those mountains create for him. As painting is a passion and not Patrick ’ s full time job, his paintings are about relaxation and expressing his own love of nature into his paintings. His main hope being that those who view them gain the same sense of pleasure and satisfaction that he does when painting them.
