is an artist whose illustrations and artwork are made entirely of cut-paper (and often wood). His studio is in Tokyo, Japan, where he lives with his amazing wife and a very, very large collection of paper from all over the world.
Mixing bold whimsy with a subtle conceptual streak, his artwork combines influences from his life in Japan and his upbringing on a farm in New Jersey where he was surrounded by animals and the natural world. His interest in myths and fables drove him to study literature as an undergrad at Providence College, Rhode Island. All these elements come together to invent a unique mythology for the current world.
Patrick has an MFA in illustration from the Savannah College of Art and Design. His work can be seen internationally in books, magazines, newspapers and more.
