Patricia Vargas has been painting since she was 10 years old. Growing up, she would often watch her mother create beautiful landscapes and wanted to be just like her. Thus began an interest in painting. Vargas would go on to graduate from the University of California Santa Barbara with a degree in Art, working first as a web and graphic designer. After four years of doing design work for private clients, this line of work no longer fulfilled her creative needs as it once did, and in 2012, Vargas returned to art and to the pursuit of her lifelong passion.

“Everything around me melts away as I focus on what I am creating and the tools that I’m working with. I allow each brushstroke to become my inspiration, and never really know where each painting will take me, but like a good story, it transcends me into a world of color.”

Vargas, originally from Oxnard, is currently based in the Inland Empire, California with her husband, their dog Roofus, and newly adopted tabby cat Arya.
