Introduction In 1997 after a bout with cancer she decided to go back to her childhood love. She began by studying with Julie Gale in New Jersey. But it was in 2005, when Patricia decided to study with her brother, Ray Carpenter, that a whole new world opened. Mr. Carpenter is renowned for his landscape paintings which are presently being exhibited in several prestigious galleries on the west coast, one being the Carmel Masterworks Gallery. Creating art with her siblings is not new to Patricia. As a young girl, she spent hours in her backyard drawing with another sibling, Michael Carpenter, a successful landscape artist in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Both of her brothers’ scapes depict the rugged western terrain, however, Patricia has found her calling with the eastern scenes with their many lakes and lush multi-colored landscapes.
Interests Patricia Corbett was born and educated in Los Angeles, California, and is the oldest of 13 children. Although it was her early life’s dream to be an artist, it was the art of singing that became her life’s work. Strangely, it was her art teacher in college who was instrumental in steering her into music by introducing Patricia to Beethoven’s “Moonlight Sonata” which he played for his students in order to inspire them to “go out and draw.” Little did he know that one went out and studied music and would sing professionally over the next 40 years with performances in concert, opera and television. She has two CDs of “Favorite Operatic Songs” and “Broadway Songs” and made her Broadway debut in 20o2 in Baz Luhrmann’s version of “La Boheme.” While Ms. Corbett toured with her music, she visited the museums of Athens, Florence, Rome, Prague, Munich, Paris and the British Isles. She knew in her heart that some day she would come back to drawing and painting. She did.
