Patricia Gallagher has always been artistic, especially in drawing and painting. She has frequently explored new media. In 2009 she decided to take a mosaic class at Sitka near Lincoln City, Oregon. It was taught by Mark Brody. The class turned her into a lover of the process of mosaic. She says: I wake up with ideas, head to my studio and start working on a project.

Now primarily working in stained glass, she has pieces ranging from small Christmas ornaments to large 4 ft X 5 ft mirrors.

She has studied mosaics with Mark Brody, Lynn Adamo and Kelly Knickerbocker. Each person has taught her a great deal about what a person can do with a little adhesive, some glass, and a surface to put it on.

Patricia also has taken water color and print making classes from Renee Ugrin through Clackamas Community College, spent two weeks in Italy the summer of 2010 painting, drawing and learning prospective from Benno Phillipson at LaRomita School of Art.

Her work has been shown at Art a la Carte, Milwaukie, Oregon, First Friday in the historic district of Pocatello, Idaho. Also she participates in various art shows and sales. Including The Village Art Gallery in Portland, Oregon as part of the 6” x 6” Art Challenge.
