Pat Donald born in Cape Town, South Africa comes from a family of artist's. A versatile artist who works in different media, oils being her favourite.
She started an art school 29years ago at their home in Constantia teaching children, this was to earn a much needed extra income and at the same time doing something that she was very passionate about and still is and that is to paint. Many of the children went on to win art competitions at school and elsewhere. Later on classes for adults were also introduced and these have been very successful. For a period of 4 years she taught inmates at Pollsmoor prison, very challenging but also very rewarding when you see the results and the change in attitudes.
She has the gift of taking someone who believes that they have absolutely no talent at all to a place where within a few weeks they are producing beautiful work.
Her passion is portraits some of which have been commissioned internationally. She has also had solo exhibitions and her works have been shown in galleries across the country.
Pat is very passionate about painting and the phrase is frequently heard in her home, I just love to paint. An artist who encouraged and gave her much inspiration in her earlier years was Angus MacBride.
Group Exhibitions, Kirstenbosch, Tulbagh, Riebeek Kasteel, and solo exhibitions.
