Patrice Federspiel spends her days happily painting, teaching, and marketing her art. Her watercolor classes are held at the Honolulu Museum of Art, privately, and in workshops across the country and she finds teaching others to paint extremely satisfying.
Patrice loves the magic of discovery — a key reason she paints– and enjoys witness those moments for others. Every painting comes from her heart. A sale, for Patrice, is a testimony of her ability to connect with other people. That connection is the “Spirit of Aloha” that brought her to the islands. Every painting expresses her Aloha.
Education & Awards
Patrice holds a BS in Art Education from the University of Wisconsin – Madison. She is a signature member, trustee, and past president of the Hawai’i Watercolor Society. Her art has been in numerous exhibits in the U.S., earned many awards, and is collected by fans worldwide.
Through painting I feel connected to the world around me, to the people in it, and to my inner self. Some people connect through words, some through music, some through movement; I am a visual connector. I strive to bring others into connection with themselves through my paintings. – Patrice Federspiel
