Pat Anderson, Artist

Pat Anderson’s art combines detail and vibrant colors into an interesting new image of a subject. Her imagination, artistic experiences, and extensive island cruising with Capt. Pete, her late husband, have provided additional character and depth to her paintings.

Pat created and published “My Own Cruising Journal,” an actual journal of her artwork while cruising together on their yacht, in 1992, and expanded this cover design onto a variety of garments and merchandise.

In 1996, the large retail store named after My Own Cruising Journal opened in the upscale city of Lighthouse Point, FL. They expanded the business by selling several lines of tropical and marine clothing, gifts, and pieces of artwork.

September 2011 Pat closed the store and art gallery in The Shoppes at Beacon Light, Lighthouse Point, FL. Now she follows her passion to paint Plein Air.
