Pat’s first memory of making art is of her sitting on the back steps of their family house, drawing at age ten.
With a B.A. in Fine Arts from the University of Redlands, California in 1956 Pat MacBain is our longest member of the UCV Arts Committee.
Pat attended Emily Carr College of Art and Design, Vancouver and received a Diploma in Painting 1983.
She also participated in Artists in Our Midst for 8 years, and the North Shore Picture Loan for a couple of years.
While in Cornwall, England in 1961-62 Pat took a watercolour workshop and has been painting, sketching, and batiking for most of her life.
One of her Memorable moments in her studio was when a mouse ate into a tube of cadmium red oil paint, plus a nibble of burnt umber. She is pretty sure he ended up poisoned.
