Patrick Mccabe

Patrick McCabe was born in Johannesburg but has lived most of his life in Cape Town and Asia. His natural drawing ability together with his love of nature and the fascination of movement in animals and people encouraged him to develop his artistic skills from a young age. Patrick McCabe's artistic career started at the UCT Ballet School, where he went on to dance professionally for several years with the CAPAB Ballet Company. After pursuing his dancing career, Patrick steered his creative skills into the fashion clothing world. This experience enabled him to be based in the East for 17 years, where he had the good fortune of living in Hong Kong, Taiwan and China. Having had the opportunity to travel worldwide, he gained invaluable international exposure to the American, European and Asian Arts and Culture. This experience, together with his African roots, has had a profound influence on his art.
