He taught ceramics at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center and at Lakeland University. Along with his wife Karen, they own Two Fish Gallery in Elkhart Lake, WI. His work includes clay, metal, glass, and mixed media.

Patrick’s Statement about the show: “It was and honor to judge the 2020 Holiday Membership Exhibit and exciting to see the incredible diversity represented by the PAC member artists. Determining awards is challenging, enjoyable, and done with serious attention given to each entry. Brief comments accompany each of the awarded works. Most importantly, now more than ever, I encourage new and longtime members to continue your artistic journeys with renewed enthusiasm. The value of the communally sharing of creative expression is priceless.”
