Artist's Statement
       “There is an internal relationship between making a piece of art and the artist. 

 It is important however,  that the work draws in the viewer to complete the visual process.  

Images need to emotionally engage both maker and viewer.”

Artist's Biography

Midwest Regional Artists Grant Wood and Thomas Hart Benton and their dedication to technique and recording the passion of Midwesterners strongly influence Patrick Doughman’s art.

He believes art should document experiences of the human condition and leave images for future generations to consider. Peoples’ daily lives, their interactions within society and their landscapes are themes repeated in the artist’s work.

Growing up in Wisconsin and having a father who was an artist and educator instilled a passion for the arts at an early age.

Mr. Doughman received solid educational training rooted in purpose and meaning through talented instructors at UW-Platteville and UW-Madison.  At UW Madison, he was privileged to work with artist / educators Warrington Colescott, Bill Weege, Dean Meeker and Raymond Gloeckler. These accomplished Wisconsin artists fueled and guided Patrick’s into receiving his  MFA  and passion for Printmaking.

Deep interest in art history and historical art techniques lay the foundation for egg tempera painting, wood and linoleum printmaking which comprise the majority of the artist’s current body of work.
