Currently, Patrick works as a furniture maker artist and educator. As an artist, he focuses on found, functional sculpture. He loves to explore new mediums and techniques. To his repertoire of media that he uses, he has added ceramic hand-bulding work which has allowed him to explore and redefine his boundaries as an artist. Patrick attempts to use unique materials with unusual and surprising methods. In particular, he enjoys saving and repurposing historic pieces that would otherwise be lost to history. Patrick states, "To blend my energy with that of the original craftsman's is to honor them and the piece."
