Patricia Cain

Born in Newcastle and raised in the Lake District Patricia's paintings are a response to her immediate environment and the impact that has on her sense of identity. Increasingly her work reflects the urban environment of Glasgow where she now lives and works. Patricia's route to artistic practice was a circuitous one, abandoning illustration at St Martins in London to train as a lawyer. Having qualified she worked for eight years before moving to Glasgow and qualifying in Scottish law. In 2004 she began work on an interdisciplinary research PhD at the Glasgow School of Art. Since then she has won innumerable prizes, awards and residencies and has had solo exhibitions at a number of public galleries.
