J.P. 'Pat' Childress, a sixth generation Texan, was born and raised in the eastern oilfields of the state. He graduated from the University of Texas at Arlington with a M.B.A and after starting and later selling a holding company, Childress moved to the Hill Country of Texas. His interest in art is long standing; he constantly improves his techniques in oil painting and sculpting through workshops and classes with some of the most highly respected artists on today's art scene.
Childress has shown his work in numerous shows and won awards in every juried show in which he submitted his sculptures.
Please feel free to contact the artist using the form on this page. Original oil paintings, reproductions of works as well as limited edition bronze sculptures are available for purchase directly from the artist.
As noted, private commissions are welcome and constitute a major portion of my artisitic endeavors.
