Patricia Saxton

An equally accomplished painter, illustrator, writer and graphic designer, it’s safe to say that Patricia’s creativity is her passion.

Her professional history includes serving clientele from several Fortune 500 companies over the course of her 35+ years as the creative engine behind design & illustration firm Saxton Studio, as well as author-illustrating an inspirational design book and three best-selling children’s books, 20+ years designing books for other authors – and pretty much an entire lifetime of award-winning drawing and painting. Fluidly shifting between realism and abstraction, her approach across mediums is both intuitive and disciplined, incorporating an eye for detail, a spirit of originality, and a deep sensitivity for light and color.

With nature and imagination as constant muses, the work of creating daily, sharing her experience and inspiring others to embrace their own unique gifts are just a few of her favorite things.
