Pat McNabb Martin is an American contemporary painter widely known for always experimenting and creating new and unique marks. Her artistic freedom is limited by traditional brushes, so she uses utensils, knives, paints sticks, and squeegees. She is continuously adding, subtracting, painting over and painting out, allowing the mystery of technique to keep her interested. An accomplished art educator, filmmaker, graphic designer, and manufacturer/designer of hand-painted women’s clothing and accessories, Pat McNabb Martin designed and built single-family homes on spec in Southern CA for eighteen years. In 2002 she returned to painting full time.
