Patricia Blackwell: Born in Shreveport, Louisiana, Patricia was influenced greatly by her uncle, Warren Blackwell, a commercial artist in New York City. She moved to Houston, Texas and worked in the oil industry, where she met her future husband, Carsten Westergaard and moved to Copenhagen, Denmark. After 20 years, they returned to Houston, along with their son, Thor. This is where Patricia’s interest in art surfaced after taking several courses at Glassell School of Art. She gravitated to portrait/figure drawing, using mixed media, especially collage with pan pastels with the goal to first create a realistic likeness and then to distort it by manipulation.
