Patsy Blasdell

Patsy Blasdell is an optimist who always believes the glass is half full! She loves to have fun and stretch her abilities as a painter and encourages others to do the same.

Her art has been influenced by Ken Hosmer, Ann Templeton, Sidney Hermel, and many others.
Planning the design and composition by use of strong value contrasts is a trademark of Patsy’s work. She makes her statement with expressionistic use of color based on her emotional reaction to the subject while staying loose and enjoying the process.
This is a year of exploration, inventive use of design, and working toward new levels of creativity. Thanks for taking the risks along with her! It promises to be a wild and crazy ride!


Her artistic adventure began in 1984 with encouragement from her first watercolor teacher in San Angelo, TX where she worked as a registered nurse in OB/Gyn. A move to Las Cruces years later and an art class with Bill Herring prompted her to try pastels. After that investment she believed she would like oils so she spent more time and money on more supplies. Patsy paints oils with her left hand because she just knew that was the plan.
