About the artist
Patricia Buckley was born on May 20th, 1933, in the Richmond Borough of New York City. In grade school, young Patricia was perceived as a poor student, a circumstance probably attributable to dyslexia which is a generally misunderstood reading and perceptional "disorder". Nonetheless, one of her teachers determined that this little girl who was "Not Proficient In Anything" was artistically gifted. This opinion convinced Pat's mother to enroll her daughter in an extraordinary public school for girls in downtown Manhattan : the Washington Irving High School for the Fine Arts. It was t that Pat's artistic abilities were finally encouraged and seriously nourished.

On scholarship, in 1951 Pat began studies at New York 's Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art. Soon after leaving school she married Jack Moss, a chemical engineer. In 1964, Pat's husband's work took his family with a sixth child on the way to Waynesboro in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. Soon Pat was incorporating the quiet beauty of rural scenery and to know the picturesque and deeply religious Amish and Mennonite "plain" people. Her uniqueness of her style and the warmth generated by her subject matter quickly won her wide spread recognition.

Today, thousands of collectors in the United States , Europe, and Japan have come to recognize, appreciate, and treasure Pat Moss' art with its distinctive look and its great popular appeal. Although she now enjoys tremendous artistic success, Pat Moss has become almost equally wellknown for her dedicated work with special education groups and her generous donations to children-related charities.

Pat Moss in her art and in her life seems to "speak" a language that ordinary folks are able to understand. Talent, determination, intelligibility, a little luck, and lots of caring are all parts of the Moss phenomenon. These are the attributes that constitute Moss' life and fill her art. For many who know her work and are familiar with her life and her upbeat philosophy, she truly is "THE PEOPLE'S ARTIST".
