“I was born in Great Falls Montana, July 17 1958. I started making art when I was 2 years old. I would sit with my mom and draw cartoon like mean drawings of people. I have been drawing ever since. I learned a valuable lesson when I was young which was how to make art fun. That is the basic guideline I follow now is keeping art fun. If it’s not fun I don’t do it. I’m not saying art has to be candy and butterflies I am just saying that I need to be challenged and feel great about the art I am doing. I am currently working on pet portraits which might be thought of as cheesy by some but I love doing them and they are very challenging and people love them.They are very economical and I am getting quite a few orders so I am staying alive now through my pet portraits. Up until now I have done everything I can to keep my soul and wallet alive from cityscapes to portraits. I have also been doing performance art as mangina for the last 12 years. I wear a virtually real vagina utilizing my own genitalia interacting with female genitals (mine that is). In other words I use my scrotum as labia and call it the lotum. This is kind of insane but I interact with people and it has been a powerful performance. So that’s me in a nut shell …pardon the pun! I make sculture, performance art, painting and writing. Pet portraits: ” Patrick Bucklew

    Patrick is one of my favorite people to hang out with and this article gives the reason…he’s fun. He’s fun to be around, fun to make art with, fun to perform with, and fun to have as a friend. He stays alive because he makes the people around him smile and laugh and they can be themselves. I don’t think he fully realizes the influence he has on those around him.
