The Late Patricia Moran

Patricia Moran’s philosophy was to paint the visual truth.  She stated: “The painting is only as good as its weakest point”.  

Those that knew her personally and those who didn’t, certainly as artists knew of her magnificent paintings.  Patricia Moran was not only an extraordinarily talented artist celebrated for her still life of flowers, but also for her tutoring.

For many years Patricia taught oil painting at the Victorian Artists Society, but because of her dedication to her own painting moved on, but generously leaving a legacy to her tutoring by giving back through her books and teaching DVD’s.

Her love of painting, her love of life and everything beautiful, cannot be denied.  Her passion for her garden and the flowers she lovingly grew are from which most of her paintings were born.

Patricia always planned and patiently waited for everything to ‘come together’, before she commenced a painting, sometimes missing ‘the season’ and having to wait for the next.  Patricia painted only directly from life.  The casually arranged flowers in the vase, and the carefully selected beautiful pieces of china and drapery, had to be the very best and usually painted only the once… A perfectionist…

Patricia Moran has dedicated her life to flower painting and is today one of Australia’s most sought after and respected floral painters.  Since turning professional in 1978, held numerous successful solo exhibitions, awards and distinctions, including the prestigious Alice Bale Scholarship.   A successful author having published two books on painting and her comprehensive DVD Collection.

Patricia Moran is renowned around the world for her magnificent floral compositions.

“Her paintings were the whole symphony orchestra”.
