Patrick Pearson

Patrick Pearson is a visual artist in Adelaide, South Australia, painting in oils. South African-born, Patrick emigrated to Australia in his early thirties, and before Adelaide had lived in Queensland and New South Wales as well as spending several years in the United Kingdom and also back in South Africa. He had careers in education and in business for twenty-five years before a brain tumour and subsequent epilepsy led to a rethink of life’s priorities, culminating in a return to the art he’d practised in childhood when he was occasionally coached by the South African artist and art academic Hunter Nesbit, and in his twenties when he’d studied oil painting with the Cape Town-based landscape artist Gordon Hill. The decision to become a full time professional artist in oils was made only in 2019, but his work is already international, with paintings sold in Australia, as well as to buyers in New Zealand, South Africa, the United Kingdom, Europe and the USA.
