Patricia Guy (b. 1958, Ft. Worth, Texas)
Patricia Guy is a visionary folk artist interested in how color and pattern can stimulate, excite and soothe the brain, especially when the brain is fatigued. Having explored the folk art of various cultures, she believes one of the roles of an artist is to show what is possible, and to express that which has no name. Patricia enjoys art as a form of meditation, and sharing her Joy through her artwork.
Born in Ft. Worth, Texas, Patricia Guy received her BFA in Theater at the University of Texas in Austin. Her interest in sacred theater, folk theater, and dance led her to study at Le Centre du Silence Mime School with Samuel Avital in Boulder Colorado, which led to experiences in the mountains with medicine wheels, mandalas, and studying Cherokee sacred studies with Dhyani Ywahoo in Vermont. After a career with Austin Parks and Recreation Department, Patricia is now living in Ajijic, Mexico, on the shores of Lake Chapala, where she is enjoying being part of a creative community inspired by indigenous culture and a beautiful mountain environment.
