Pat O’Hara +

“Every painting is a challenge,” says Vancouver artist Pat O’Hara in a Studio Tour short. “There’s chance, and obsession. Those are the three things that my work is all about.”

“I’m most interested in colour,” says O’Hara, who cites Gordon Smith as the most influential person in her career. “I ended up being in his class at UBC and he was always very encouraging and has been all through my career.”

“Treat it like a job,” O’Hara adds. “You can’t just do it when you feel like it. You have to do it all of the time.” “When you’re not painting, you should be drawing, and observing. Use your abilities all the time.”
