Meet Our Artists
Welcome! I am Pat Woodall and have been making Art since 1973.Currently I am painting commissions for third generation collectors. I make Art when my head, my hands and my heart work together to create something extraordinary.
Living in Taos for 42 years has been inspirational in the development of my art. I walk in the morning daylight and make a point to walk under the stars every night letting ideas come and go. When I wake in the morning I awaken inspired and fresh.
I find inspiration for my art in everyday life all around me by focusing on things that draw my eye. My conceptual inspiration is to break down the image that drew my eye and then ask why. Was it the subject, shapes, color, light, shadows, any or was it all of these? This brief memory marker allows me to recall, compose, and create unique art pieces.
My experiences over time have pushed me to take risks and experiment in monotype printmaking and all mediums of painting. Trust the process!
You will find complexity and simplicity in my art. On this website I feature Oils and Monotypes. At the Gallery you will find many more plus watercolors, pastels, gouache and acrylic pieces.
My future goal is to continue making original art with the innocence of a child and the hands of a master. I always keep a mirror behind me when I paint . When I turn to see this mirror image it is much like pressing the refresh button on my brain. This is key to maintaining right brain creativity.
Together, my wife Carmen and I bring a wealth of talent and creative experiences. We have owned Pat Woodall Fine Art and Southwest Framers for 36 years. I have numerous art awards for painting and printmaking while Carmen is widely respected for her skills as a conservation framer, businesswoman networker, interior designer, culinary artist, gardener, and for her philanthropic endeavors. We met in Atlanta and have been married for 39 years. We are magically blessed with two grown children and extended family.
Since 1985 is a product of the Taos New Mexico’s Norteno culture. His imagery emerges through a veil of mutual impurities between manufacturing and fine art that creates a beautiful blend across printmaking, welding fabrication and painting cross-pollinate in both imagery and application.
Growing up on a construction site, Nick pursued a formal education at Hamilton College where he earned a Bachelor of Fine Art Degree in printmaking, and then went on to receive a Masters Degree in Architecture at the University of New Mexico. Which brought him full circle and lead him to create his own business at the age of 27 Spun Gold Manufacturing, a true nod to tradesmen roots.
By him giving a name to his diverse ventures in art and architecture, he has continued to hone his craft across a multitude of skillsets expressed through creative application but anchored in machinery and the manufacturing processes.
To date, Nick continues to conduct work in print, sculpture, and custom design-fabrication furniture with a strong experimental nature. His completed works can be seen at the Pat Woodall Fine Art Gallery, spungoldmfg.com, and on Instagram under the handle of Spun Gold.
As he continues to evolve as an artist, and stands by his belief that if you want something done, you have to just do it!!! Through this view, he remains committed to the credo “EVERY DAMN DAY”.
