   In 1993 Patrick began to create his intarsias. He is entirely self-taught, learning the hard way, by trial and error. As one of the youngest artists in this country who do this type of work, Patrick is seeking to expand his skills into the making of pictorial commessi and has begun to acquire the necessary equipment to do so.
