Born in Birmingham, AL but grew up in Charlotte, NC from the age of 5 in the lovely area of Myers Park. I am the youngest of 5 children, which made it even more of a wonderful childhood experience. At 17, I received a commission to the US Naval Academy in Annapolis which I attended for one year. Subsequently, I then transferred to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill for the following two years. Which concluded my formal education, but lead me to begin focusing on my creative side and pursuing my artistic career. I began with watercolors using India Ink on canvas at the age of 19. Drawing and sketching were things I did wherever I happened to have free time; after work, in a bar, or just riding in a car. Watercolor mediums were soon joined by dry and oil pastels, with all oil paints and Acrylics to shortly follow. By the time I was 33, all these various mediums had a grip on me. So, it was around this time that I decided to start selling my art. My aesthetic is working in multiple mediums where one good idea can be expressed in four different ways. I quickly realized if you change out the medium it can completely change the final products image regardless of using the same original idea. Through this thought process, I discovered there was more mediums out there to explore. In broadening this point of view, I began exploring the printmaking process through Monotypes in 1999. I have been making these one of a kind images for 22 years now and have found them to be enjoyed by all. It fits my nature to produce original art, and in the case of monotypes, like oil, watercolor, acrylic, graphite or pastels, each individual print is one of a kind. Pat Woodall Fine Art Gallery in located in downtown Taos, New Mexico, and is the home of all the work I do. I paint in the gallery and print right down the street at a local print shop. I am very fortunate that through my past and present, I have built a book of clients old and new. I do many commissions, as well as sell my own art to clients near and far. My gallery and myself are also blessed to have our own in-house custom framing that is done by my wife Carmen Woodall, the owner of Southwest Framers. I hope to you all love my art as much as I enjoy the process of making it. See more work at
