Patrice Erickson’s oil paintings put emphasis on the sky, clouds, and the colors of light passing through the atmosphere. The colors are vibrant yet peaceful, softly blended, gradually transitioning from one color to another. She eliminates all signs of human activity. There are no buildings or roads. She’s inspired by nature. Through her paintings she’s showing her respect for nature and reminding herself that we need to be grateful and take care of our planet. Erickson likes to leave the viewer with a sense of serenity, peace, and reverence for nature -- immersed in the beauty.

Patrice Erickson was born in Hartford, Connecticut and currently lives and works in Rochester Hills, Michigan. She earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Central Connecticut State University and a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with high honors from the University of Michigan-Flint. Her work has been exhibited throughout the Midwest and is in collections in the U.S. and abroad.


artist statement

I’m inspired by nature’s transcendent beauty. The changing and fleeting sunlight fills the sky with glorious colors and imbues the land with a spiritual aura. It’s the peaceful and ethereal moments in the outdoors that I focus on painting, not necessarily exact depictions of a particular place.

My oil paintings are built up with multiple layers of paint and glazes. I’m striving for landscapes with depth and richness of color, luminosity, and a convincing sense of distance and atmosphere. These paintings are strong statements about serene moments created to give a sense of my personal experience with nature.
