Pat Meier-Johnson is a Northern California oil painter who embraces color and light wherever she travels, from her stunning wine country and coastal landscapes to works that celebrate people and everyday life. She transforms form, light, and color into paintings that touch the heart. Pat’s works have won numerous awards and are in private collections throughout the U.S. and Asia. Among her mentors are colorist Carol Smith Myer, George Scribner of Disney Imagineering and narrative painter Chester Arnold.
I am a native of Mill Valley and currently reside in Sonoma. I work in-studio as well as plein air in oil paint, primarily on linen or canvas, and watercolor.
