Pat Clemes, A.O.C.A. (b. 1935) has spent much of her artistic career responding to nature and to her surroundings while painting in Northern and Central Ontario with her husband and fellow painter, Tom La Pierre.
She paints her landscape and floral compositions in watercolour with an immediacy and an exuberance that can only be garnered from painting on locationódrinking in the beauty of the land and transfering it to paper with each brushstroke. She has been described as a traditionalist with an approach to painting "as pure in intent as Turner's."
