Patrick Farrell

(1940 – 2016)

Artist Biography:

Farrell was born March 14, 1940, in Hardwood, Mich., the youngest of four children. The family later moved to Cudahy. Raised in a trailer park, and troubled by problems at home, Farrell stopped going to school at age 14 and never went beyond the eighth grade in school.

Farrell worked as a busboy and an errand boy for a record distribution firm and got his own apartment at 17. Then — without ever taking an art class — he started painting landscapes and still lifes to cover the walls.

After stumbling upon an art show at a shopping center and realizing his work was comparable, Farrell decided to display some of his paintings and woodcuts in an art fair at Capitol Court.
