When I was 17 years old and living in Montreal I started working for Patricia Lazar. She was making beautiful dolls at the time and I helped sew on faces and stuff bodies. I loved it and it was a great part-time job for me. And what a talented woman to work with and learn from too! Years later we both find ourselves in Toronto, having re-connected through my sister and cousin who worked with Patricia here. What a wonderfully small world! :)
Patricia is the kind of artist that finds humour in everything she does, and I love that about her art. It is fun, energetic, creative, unique and good. It is 'good' art. Her works of art are keepers!
Yesterday I was at her house and bought myself a fabulous piece of art. It is the one shown here. It hangs in my hall and I can see it from my desk so I get to enjoy all the lovely ladies of this painting every time I look up. Love it!!
Have a look through her site and visit her this weekend at her open house art sale! And by sale, I mean sale! She has some things up to 75% off the original prices - there are some beautiful unique pieces if not for yourself then perhaps for gifts.
