Patrick has spent his professional years in a variety of creative fields. He began his career as an actor and singer, which eventually led him to designing costumes for stage and screen. Costuming credits include more than 50 productions and work with celebrities such as Liza Minnelli and Jane Seymour. An artist and illustrator since childhood, Patrick works in many mediums. When he sits down to doodle at the drawing board, he never knows what one of his designs might become. But, whether it's designing quilts, wearable art, stationery products, or home decor, he enjoys creating it all. A prolific designer, he is probably most well known for his very successful and long-running collections of fabric from Timeless Treasures, Robert Kaufman Fabrics, and Moda that include his trademark marbleized solids which are trendsetters in the industry. Patrick's quilts, crafts, clothing, and home decorating accessories have appeared in such distinguished magazines as Better Homes & Gardens, American Patchwork and Quilting, Country Crafts, Christmas Ideas, Halloween Tricks & Treats, and many more. He has also written books on quilting and crafting for C&T Publishing and Sterling Publishing and has appeared on several television programs including The Carol Duvall Show, Simply Quilts, and America Sews.
