Patrick Reid O'Brien knew he wanted to be a painter at age 6 as he grew up in Baltimore, studying the original Watercolors of T.U. Walter, Architect of the US Capitol in Washington D.C. Walter is also Patrick's Great Great Great Great Grandfather. "Art was always calling me" Patrick graduated with honors from Saint Mary's College of Maryland, majoring in fine art. After 15 years in advertising, working for clients like Pepsi, CBS Radio, and designing logos, his wife Valerie suggested that he start painting again. Known for academic composition, sophisticated color theory, and a mastery of typography, Patrick developed his recognizeable voice at the age of 42 .
Patrick's happy lifestyle art took off grabbing the attention of Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville, The Kentucky Derby and The White House, all of whom commissioned him to create collections of art exclusively for them. He's been featured in Southern Living Magazine, The LA Times, Dan's Papers, Chicago Tribune, Baltimore Sun and Chesapeake Home to name a few. There are now close to 3000 pieces of art in this collection. It is personal. It is love. It is your memories. Please share it !
