Patricia Lazar studied at the School of Art & Design, Montreal Museum of Art under the tutelage of Dr. Arthur Lismer, one of the famous Canadian Group of Seven. She then spent several years working in the Safed Artist Colony in Israel. From a very early age, her calling was to be a professional artist, and she has taught and practiced various forms of art all her life. She began specializing in ceramic art about twenty years ago, and is known for her unique, funky, whimsical, and bright plates, mugs, teapots and sculptural pieces, often depicting female figures and animals. She participates in many juried shows in Canada and the U.S.
Animals are a big part of Patricia’s life, and she supports several humane societies. She lives in Toronto with her beloved Chinese Crested Powder Puff dog, Walter.
Patricia Lazar is represented in Arizona by Wilde Meyer Gallery.
