Patricia Beary is an inventive fine art photographer and an accomplished art educator from Long Island, New York. Holding a BFA from LIU Post, Patricia’s photography is strongly influenced by her fine art background. She aligns herself with the Pictorialist Photographers who took the medium of photography and reinvented it as an art form, placing beauty, tonality, and composition above creating an accurate visual record. Her photographs are painterly and abstract, using camera, post processing, and contemporary alternative process to deconstruct and interpret rather than create images that solely represent.

As a member of Soho Photo Gallery in NYC, Patricia exhibits her photography in both solo and group exhibitions and holds a position on the executive board. She exhibits regularly at the Alex Ferrone Gallery in Cutchogue, Long Island. Patricia's work has and has been featured in group exhibitions in the US, Italy ,Spain and Japan. She is the recipient of a Julia Margaret Cameron Award (2014) and a Pollux Award (Honorable Mention, 2021). 

Retired from a 30 year career as an art educator, Patricia fuels her passion for teaching  by working with the Image Factory Workshops, introducing photographers to contemporary alternative process techniques in photography.
