Patty B. Driscoll’s work investigates Southern 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. After 17 years of raising her children, Driscoll returned to a full-time studio practice in 2015 in her hometown of Birmingham, Alabama. She is represented by Canary Gallery in Birmingham, Alabama.
