Patricia grew up on the shores of New Jersey. Loving art sine she can remember, she taught herself how to draw and paint. In her 30s she decided to attend Brookdale Community College where she received her AA in Fine Arts. Patiria then went on to earn a bachelors in Fine Art Painting, Video, and Sculpture from the School of Visual Arts in New York. For nearly 25 years, her primary subject has been about amusements, specifically those in Asbury Park. Its playfully lyrical narrative parallels with her own experiences throughout her life. More recently, in the last decade, Patricia has been creating images based on her intuition and spiritual growth with a concentration on space, the beauty of the natural world, and connecting with the inner soul via artistic meditation.
Patricia has a dynamic diversity in her paintings, allowing her to create whatever vision clients commission her to make for them. She has been commissioned for portraits, local scenes, urban landscapes, and more personal private works. Two of such commissioned works are murals located in Asbury Park: one is located on the lower level of the Asbury Transportation Center and the other is located just off Main Street on Bangs Avenue.
Patricia also has works in private collections throughout the US, Italy, and Australia. She currently has work on displays at a physician’s office in Spring Lake and offers her own Asbury Line of apparel and prints at Type-b Tie Dye in Asbury Park.
Her most recent venture is opening a new gallery, the Locals Art Space, located in downtown Asbury Park. The Locals Art Space is a member-supported gallery where local New Jersey artists may show, sell, and share art.
She can be found in news publications, the internet, and via her website Patricia-Arroyo-pixels.com, via Facebook on several pages @ArroyoArtStudio, @TilliesFunhouse, @LocalsrtSpace, and on Instagram @PatriciaArroyoArtist.
