About the Artist

Patricia Orellana (Clyde Hill) was born and raised in Jersey City, N.J., and lived in Medellin, Colombia for a few years. She is a graduate from the School of Visual Arts in N.Y.C. As a visual artist, she is drawn to history and its accounts of what was learned, forgotten and rediscovered. Connections, stories, they are present and prominent themes in her work. As a Hispanic American, she feels the responsibility of living in two very diverse cultures. It is the journey of defining her place in both that steers her work to finding unexpected commonalities between the two worlds she inhabits.
