Pat Harvey studied graphic design at Hounslow Borough College and Kingston School of Art and has an Honours Degree in French from the University of Sussex. She is a watercolourist specialising in Paris, London and floral subjects.

A writer and researcher on art and French culture, she is the veteran of several key television productions, including BBC TV Arena's 'Marcel Carne - The Classic Years' (1985), and ITV's South Bank Show 'Hear My Chanson' , starring Juliette Greco and Charles Aznavour (1996). She has written on art for Third Way, Artists & Illustrators and the Church Times, and is a qualified and experienced Adult Art Tutor. Pat's watercolours hover at the borders of fantasy and reality. Like the artists she admires (Eric Ravilious, Mary Potter, Winifred Nicholson, Mary Fedden, John Piper), she aims to invest everyday subjects with an air of the extraordinary. Representational but with a dash of surrealism, her paintings are miniature explosions of colour and light

She has exhibited widely, including at the Brighton Festival and the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour, and her work  is in collections in France, Sweden, the UK and the United States. She is a Council Member of the Society of Graphic Fine Art, and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.
