Patty B. Driscoll’s work investigates female identity by utilizing the traditional still-life format to experiment with the intersections of feminine/feminist themes. Her most recent paintings focus on the kudzu bloom as a symbol for Southern women and their voice.

In addition to her formal degree training, Driscoll has studied at the Florence Academy of Art, the Studio Arts Center International in Florence, and the Art Instituto in San Miguel Allende, Mexico. Her paintings have been exhibited at the Alexandria Museum of Art, the Masur Museum, the Wiregrass Museum of Art, and the Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery of Skidmore College. For the past 20 years, Driscoll has lived and worked in her hometown of Birmingham, Alabama.
