Brought up in Madrid, Spain, Patricia Figueroa moved to Providence, Rhode Island, in the late 1980s to earn a bachelor´s degree in fine arts with a major in printmaking from the Rhode Island School of Design. She currently divides her time between the United States and Spain.
Her style is a mixture of figurative and abstract imagery executed with palette knife, brush, and pencil. She often incorporates stencil techniques and collage in her work.
While her early pieces focused primarily on drawings, etchings and drypoints, she presently works almost exclusively with oil paint and pencil on masonite board.
