A self-taught artist, Pat Frades (b. 1993) is recognized for her whimsical and enchanting clay sculpture pieces. Her enduring fascination with mushrooms and corals, characterized by their remarkable growth, distinctive beauty, and harmonious coexistence with nature, is now the foundation of her artistic expression. Frades’ artworks engage multiple senses, providing a holistic experience, inviting viewers to approach and appreciate art from a fresh and multi-dimensional perspective.
Her artistic journey began after graduating with a BSBA in Marketing Management from Far Eastern University (FEU) in Manila. From there, Frades worked alongside new and upcoming artists as a gallery assistant, occasionally assuming the role of a curator. Her experience in nurturing these artists and their creative endeavors encouraged her to embark on a full-time career as an artist.
