Patricia Ariel is a Northwest fine artist and illustrator. Based on Everett, WA, she was born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where she achieved a degree in Fashion Design and a BA in Art Education by the Rio de Janeiro State University. While in Brazil she worked as an art teacher in schools and art courses, and run workshops in several subjects related to the arts and holistic living. Following her immigration to the US, Patricia started a thriving career in the fine arts. Her works have been collected and published all over the US and abroad. Besides painting and drawing, her experience with the Arts involves dance and corporal expression, drama, music, design, and literature (fiction and poetry.)
Patricia’s philosophy in art is deeply tied to her studies of mysticism and spirituality. She believes in art as a journey toward self-realisation and a tool for healing, bringing joy, expanding one’s consciousness, and tuning the artist into the sacred rhythms of life. Her goal as an art facilitator is to contribute to changes in the individual level, sharing her passion for the Arts and inspiring and helping people to live more meaningful and creative lives.
