Welcome to Art Karma, the home of artist Patrick J. Cunningham.

Patrick Cunningham (aka Giolla Patraic, my Irish name) has been influenced by the; love of art and history to develop a philosophical way of looking at life and the world around him.

Born in Southern California, Patrick knew at an early age what he wanted to do with his life. His childhood passion for history and art ultimately led him to develop the Old Master Style for which he is known.  Oil paintings are his primary medium, but portraiture, sculpture and figurative abstraction are also part of his work.

Patrick Cunningham also believes learning is a lifelong pursuit that is essential to one’s growth as an artist.  His studies have taken him to Ceri, Italy, a small Tuscan village where he studied fresco techniques under Italian masters, and to France where he studied mural design.

Patrick’s work resides in numerous private collections across the United States and Europe.

    Oh my goodness…..I’m so happy you are still doing what you love. So long ago and I have the two pieces you painted. The cherubs (6 ft.) remember…..I had to make you come to my house and sign it!!). Also the colorful landscape you gave us as a gift when we moved to TX! Well, we are in Naples, FL now. Paradise. If you come this far south, let us know. It’s an artists dream.
    Be well my friend. Judith & Ramon
