Pat Beaton is a visual artist working in printmaking, installation, and community-engaged public art. Central to her work is her exploration and questioning of the many ways that human and non-human life co-exists in urban, rural and wilderness environments of BC and Washington. Her art practice and teaching reflect her evolving understanding of the relationships we have to the land.
Pat’s print work has included relief printmaking (linocut, woodcut), collagraphs, drypoint, lift prints, and etching. She has often pushed the boundaries of what a print can be by transforming printed materials into large scale installations. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally.
She currently lives and works in Vancouver, British Columbia and Lummi Island, Washington with her partner Doug. She feels restored by being outdoors and is grateful for this opportunity to be living in close company with the forests and waters of the west coast.
