Patricia Frederick received her MFA in painting from the Maryland Institute College of Art and her BFA from St. Norbert College.

Since 1977, she has taught art at Pius XI High School where, as department chair, she has led the art program to national prominence. Her work as a teacher has earned numerous regional and national awards, including Teacher of the Year from the International Network of Performing and Visual Art Schools and Distinguished Teacher from the White House Commission on Presidential Scholars.

Exhibits of her own paintings include group and solo shows in Maryland, Missouri, and Wisconsin. Collectors include Johnson Controls, Inc., and the City of Milwaukee Art Commission. In Hand and Spirit, an exhibition of her current paintings at Carroll University’s Rowe Gallery, Frederick explores her interests in chaos theory and emergence theory. She explains, “Emergence theory is based upon the idea that non-linearity in the evolution of complex systems is a direct result of the curvature of the surrounding phase-space of any particular system. Chaos theory suggests that there is an underlying order to apparent randomness. In my paintings, I am learning to trust my intuition to discover ordered relationships among systems of time, space, and light.”
