Patrick grew up in Belfast, Ireland, during the worst of the "troubles". Influenced by artists Boris Vallejo and Frank Frazetta, he spent long days in the sanctuary of rooftops, drawing and dreaming of becoming a fantasy artist, to the din of street riots below. After two years in the merchant navy he moved to London and spent 15 years as an illustrator before travelling the world once more.
