Artist Char Fitzpatrick
About Paintbox from Portland

My name is Char Fitzpatrick and I am an artist by trade. I grew up in the Pacific Northwest and have loved to draw and paint since I was a little kid. Later in the 1970’s, pumped and primed from high school art classes and being naturally adventurous, I took myself to art school in Scotland. The years I spent there, elbow to elbow with my Scottish classmates in the studio every day, or painting in the countryside, teething on the remarkable work of the Scottish colorist painters (yes, GREAT colorists) have indelibly defined me as the painter I am today.

Now I find myself revisiting those roots. And when I smear on the clouds of a spring sky or streak vermillion across a hillside with my fingertips, I still feel the same old thrill.
