Pat Hertzberg Signature

After completing Fine Art programs in Ottawa, Pat graduated from Sheridan College in Oakville, and York University in Toronto. She attended the Penland School (Textiles) in North Carolina, and has studied a wide variety of textile art techniques under numerous fibre artists in both Canada and the United States.

Pat's background is in the Canadian Fashion industry, designing womens wear and accessories for a number of Canadian manufacturers. Also, with her own factory in Toronto, she ran a design / manufacturing operation selling to major Canadian retailers, mid-size chains and high-end boutiques across Canada.

After leaving the fashion world, her training in fine art and extensive experience with fabrics merged into a new career - the design and creation of exclusive, textile-based mixed-media fine art.

Pat alters traditional textile techniques and layers them in novel ways, with unique end results. She has pioneered a process she calls "Thread-Web" - a technique that borrows from the lace-making tradition, using innovative processes and modern technology.

Pat was a Resident Artist at Mississauga's LIVING ARTS CENTRE for six years, and is a member of the CONNECTIONS Fibre Artists group. Her work can be found in both corporate and private collections in Canada, the USA, Great Britain and Mexico.
