Patricia Fabian's zest for life is apparent in her fresh and exuberant art works. The energy in her paintings is often heightened by her broad brush strokes and spontaneous designs.

The artist teaches figure painting at Quinlin Visual Arts Center so many of her figurative works feature her favorite model. Lake Lanier, where the artist has her studio, is also a favorite source of inspiration.

The artist's most recent one-person show at Reinike Gallery was New Inverness, paintings that chronicled her time on the Georgia Coast.
