Patrick’s love for the arts has grown throughout the years, and he attributes his devotion to interpreting nature in an artistic manner to his parents’ dedication to the arts. His father, Joseph, was a professional photographer; his mother, Michele, was a gifted artist who shared with him her fine eye for details, which has infused his own art.

The crux of his search was found while visiting the magnificent Gaspé Peninsula. On a warm autumn morning he approached the summit of Mont Ernest LaForce. The views took his breath away!

Di Fruscia’s desires to improve his craft and grow as an artist never wane. He believes the learning curve is endless, and he has only himself to criticize when he feels he is not living up to his artistic endeavors. Constantly searching for those transcendent moments when the perfect light embraces nature in all its splendor, his work assures us: this is merely the beginning of a long and dedicated quest to capture the magnificent and unique beauty of nature through the lens of Patrick Di Fruscia.
