Patricia Scott studied at Sunderland College of Art during the 1960s. She then moved to London, where she worked for a number of years. In 1974 she moved to Cornwall and started to work with textiles while raising a family. In 1985 she returned to painting and drawing, combining this with working at Penzance School of Art. In the 1990s she began specialising in water colours and soft pastels, painting full time with occasional teaching at workshops.
Her paintings focus on still life, and the landscape of West Penwith.
