Patricia merrill * fine art & design


Patricia was creating art when she was old enough to hold a crayon. Receiving her first easel and set of oil paints at age seven she began to paint the landscapes of her surroundings on the banks of the North Shore of New Jersey. Always fascinated with the human face, she won her first art competition at the age of seven with her portrait of Thomas Jefferson. This was the beginning of her life long need to examine and render the human face and form, whether in pencil, charcoal, pastels or oils. Today her media also includes water color, acrylics and mixed media.

Patricia built, directed and instructed a program of teaching fine art drawing and painting in a private studio on the Palos Verdes Peninsula in Southern California for almost 10 years with as many as 60 students a week.

In 2006 she received her certification as a Forensic Artist (police sketch artist).

Patricia enjoys creating and producing her paintings, decorative art objects and line of all occasion Greeting Cards under the name of Language of Love © in her home studio in San Pedro, California.

Thank you for visiting my site.  For information about prices of  existing pieces and fees for commissioned pieces, please call.  In-person visits to the studio are set by appointment.
