Patricia Wheeler is a mixed media painter. Using a form of imbrication—image and text arranged so that they overlap—she explores concepts of human interaction with place. Her search is spiritual. By conjoining the visual and the verbal, the interrelated symbols encode and transmit meaning. Most recently her work has been informed by an exchange with Maine farmers and the local food movement.
Patricia lives on Deer Isle, Maine.
