Patrick Shirvington is a Sydney born artist who began painting full time in 1975.

Responding to seasonal changes in the landscape, Patrick Shirvington’s studies of the local environs, with intensified frenzy, pushes the markings, scribbles and scratches of the tree to the surface ground that emulates the feel and smell of the bush.
Patrick will present dialogue on the connection to our surrounds through drawing, and the many tools we can use. From simple sketches, through to more detailed work and animations
