Pat Puckett


Growing up along the SC coast and living part time in Key West, FL, one cannot help but be inspired by the endless backdrop of tidal creeks, salt marshes and wetlands where freshwater and salt mix. This has become the context for oil painter Pat Puckett. With a 23-year career in interior design, Pat has always been guided by a passion for lush color, design, and the ability to see beyond the ordinary.

Interpreting the natural beauty of landscapes, seascapes and historical locales has become the centerpiece of Pat’s art. Her focus is using rich buttery oil color with bold fluid brushstrokes to capture a fleeting moment in time. Along her artistic journey, Pat has had the opportunity to study un national and international master painters. Her plein air adventures have taken her across the US, Europe, and Mexico. Still, her favorite place to capture on canvas is the beautiful beach and salt marsh of her South Carolina home.

Pat’s fine art has been featured in many magazines, galleries, and museums across South Carolina. She has served on the Culinary Symphony and Visual Art Committees for the Pawleys Island Festival of Music and Art and she has chaired the Seaside Palette En Plein Air Event in Georgetown, SC. Her work hand in private and corporate collections through the country. Her large dramatic paintings adding a timeless allure to both classic and contemporary settings.

Pat is a member of the Oil Painters of America and the American Impressionist Society.
