Pat O'Hara

Pat O’Hara is an established abstract painter based in Vancouver. O’Hara works in a lyrical abstract style in her primary medium of acrylic paint. For O'Hara, the process of art-making is a game of challenge, chance and obsession.  Travel, emotion and environment inspire the colour and composition of O'Hara's work, in which spontaneous layering of line and mark-making create sensuous movement and lively energy.

Pat O'Hara was born in Burns Lake, British Columbia and studied art at the University of British Columbia and Emily Carr College of Art and Design, where she graduated with the Merit Award for painting in 1981. Her process of art-making over the past 30 years has included a variety of experimental techniques using paint-dipped strings to pull paint across two-dimensional surfaces, as well as cutting, layering, collage and weaving canvas. O’Hara’s work can be found in private and public collections all across Canada including Air Canada, Pan Pacific Hotel in Vancouver, Scotiabank, Citibank, and Polygon Homes. O’Hara continues to live and work out of her home and studio in Vancouver, Canada.
