About Patsee Parker

Patsee Parker is a native Oregonian who has been painting most of her life, professionally for more than 50 years. Her paintings reflect the entire Pacific Northwest and the many differing views and seasons of this scenic area.

Her field trips in the Northwest mountains to do "plein air" painting studies were the basis for many of her popular landscapes.

Living "smack on the Oregon Coast" was convenient for developing the study of painting water and the unique movement of sea water. Her studio window viewed the beach and ocean and her seascapes were inspired by this closeness and enhanced by the surroundings areas of the Central Oregon Coast particularly. Her ever popular seascape collages using local beach sand have been sought by collectors for over 30 years. This special technique is her own invention.

While living next door to the gallery, Patsee enjoyed beach walks often accompanied by her two cats unless there was a “dog alert”. She still paints, stretches her own canvases and does her own framing, but at a more leisurely pace.

In 2017 Patsee moved to Eugene where she can be reached by email at westlight@patsee.com.
