The Book

Story showcases Maher very unique style as the reader is taken on a visual journey
through the key influences that go into her art-making. The work is divided into
thematic sections that each begin with thoughtful and almost poetic commentary about
her inspiration and thought processes. The result is an engaging and delightful visual journey.

The Photographer

Patty is widely known for hiding or obscuring the faces of her subjects, using only posture, gesture, symbol and colour to convey emotion and story. With a highly recognizable style that is inspired by literature, fairy tales and surrealist paintings, Maher explores the deep and often complex inner worlds of her subjects while at the same time considering notions of personal space, identity and transformation.

About the Book

What will you find inside Story

Since then, Maher’s work has been featured in countless online and print publications, garnered numerous prestigious contest wins, been exhibited and sold internationally, and is counted among the permanent roster of artists in several prominent galleries throughout the world.

Recently Maher won the 13th edition of the Julia Margaret Cameron award and was awarded a solo show at Fotonostrum Gallery in Barcelona. She was also named a finalist in the prestigious Hassleblad Masters Competition2021 in the Art category.
