Pat Pollard: After a successful career as a commercial photographer, Pat relocated to Taos in 1990 and began to experiment with various media to express her own personal vision. The result has been a wide variety of mixed media combining everything from photographic imagery to construction, sculpture and found objects. For the last several years, she has concentrated solely on two-dimensional painting. A writer of poetry and short stories when she was young, Pat set painting aside to write a memoir, Long Time Lost, soon to be published by Nighthawk Press.
