Patricia Feiler lives in Mattituck, New York. During college and throughout her thirty-three year career as a music educator in the Eastport and Southold Public Schools, Patricia continued her passionate study of art. Her paintings reflect a fascination with the luminous colors of Long Island's beaches, sky, and farmland. When winter sets in, she travels in a camper to warmer places and seeks out her next subject. She sets up her easel and paints on site, capturing the beauty and drama in whatever captures her interest: a desert prairie, a steamy marsh in the Southeast or a Long Island beach at dawn. Patricia is a native of Center Moriches, New York, Her family has a strong tradition in writing, music and art. She is a not- so-distant relative of the renowned artist Thomas Nast. At an early age she began copying illustrations done by her uncle, Richard Nast Osborne, for books written by her father, Chester G. Osborne.
Patricia Feiler has been a frequent teaching artist at the Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center and is an active member of the East End Arts Council. Her paintings are included in many private collections and juried shows.

Her artwork has been featured on numerous Dan's Paper's Magazine covers, and is included in Dan's Papers 2019 Commemorative book "60 SUMMERS." Five of her East End landscapes have recently been selected for installation in the new towers at Stony Brook Hospital.
