Patricia A. Stewart earned her BFA from Southern Illinois University.  She furthered her studies at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, the International School of Art and Design in Miami, Florida, and the Savanna School of Art and Design in Georgia.  She earned her Master’s Degree in Educational Administration at Chicago State University.  Patricia Stewart is a retired art teacher/ Curriculum Coordinator who has received recognition for her work from numerous institutions.  Her paintings, sculptures, and jewelry have been on exhibit at galleries and are among collections nation wide.  

With leather I created wearable art pieces.  I was impressed with leather’s ability to be cut, wetted, twisted, heated, glued, mutilated, formed, and colored.  This sculptural nature of leather soon initiated larger bas-relief assemblages and sculptures.  Found objects are integrated into the pieces to transform and shatter tradition.  I use acrylics to add color and infuse it with  rich metallic accents. Though my work reveals a refreshing sense of humor, I intend to reveal the integrity of the Human Spirit, the Sensitivities of Life, the Unity of Family, the Fidelity of Friends, and Pride in my African-American Heritage.
