  Patricia Giles has lived a lifetime of painting. From early childhood, she has spent summers at the Great Lakes, her membership of the Art Society of Tasmania for 66 years, the Sunday Painters from late 1960s for 20 years, her teaching, her establishment of the Lloyd Jones Art Gallery, her involvement in the artists’ camps at Lake Pedder, and most importantly her many paintings in oils and watercolour of landscapes, birds and portraiture.
Her memories and companionship of many artists along the way have included teaching and painting alongside Carrington Smith, Harry Buckie, Elspeth Vaugh, and of course Max Angus, a life-long friend, to name but a few.
Her joy and sparkling nature find a passion in the Tasmanian landscape. Her mobility these days is a little restricted however she has recently rediscovered access to the bush through the level paths of the Pipeline Tracks on Mt Wellington, as well as her constant walks along the Nutgrove foreshore to Blinking Billy Point. Many of these new works delight in the colour, sounds and movement of these places.
