Working on heavy-duty
cotton canvas stapled to thickly made, custom-sized wooden
stretchers, Patrick McCarthy has created nearly nine thousand
paintings. He employs water-based paint, water-based varnish,
a variety of silk screens combined with freehand brushwork.
Each piece is unique and not part of a series. His clients
include many of the world’s most famous entertainers,
such as Will Smith, Madonna, Andre Agassi, Usher, Matthew
Perry, Shaquille O'Neal, Quincy Jones and Michael J. Fox.
McCarthy received his education from the University of Notre
Dame and University of Missouri.
