Pat Forsberg is an award-winning artist who lives and paints in Charleston. She studied art at the Ringling School of Art in Sarasota, Florida, and for sever- al years under esteemed artist Elizabeth Bronson. For Forsberg the Lowcountry
offers endless inspiration. “I feel that living in the Lowcountry is a blessing for any artist as it is rich with subject matter, and we have a community that appre- ciates art,” Forsberg says. “The water, marshes and architecture are all spectacular subjects, and I love painting them all. I’m es- pecially drawn to still life. I love scouring local antiques shops for objects to incorporate into my setups—it is a great excuse to shop!” From figures on the beach at
Sullivan’s Island to Lowcountry creek scenes to sun-splashed floral arrangements, Forsberg’s works radiate her obvious love of nature. You can find her paintings at this year’s Piccolo Spoleto Outdoor Art Exhibition as well as on her website.
