Patricia Corbett is an oil painter and is well-known for her paintings of the Merritt Parkway landscapes and bridges using a mixture of the French and Californian impressionistic style.
Corbett was educated in Los Angeles, California. It was her childhood dream to become a painter, but as fortune would have it she ended up traveling the world as a performing artist. After retiring in 2005 from the stage and screen she advanced her art study with nationally known oil painters Ron Rencher whom she met at Scottsdale Art Institute, Sherrie McGraw and John Massimino. She has taken workshops in Italy with Will McCarthy and Sandra Wakeen and studied at the Académie de la Grande Chaumière in Paris, France. Her paintings include landscapes, seascapes, and figurative work.
She writes: “There are so many parallels in the world of music and art. Expression through any art form comes from reaching deep inside oneself and letting the essence of our lives pour out. It takes a lot of personal trust to do that. When you reach that place in singing you get a standing ovation!” Corbett’s paintings are currently exhibited at Spectrum Gallery in Centerbrook, Connecticut.
