Patrick Crofton studied graphic design and illustration in Cape Town, South Africa,
and worked in a number of design studios and advertising agencies, including the J. Walter Thompson Company, before becoming a freelance artist. A move to the United States and a home in
New York followed, but eventually he came to Philadelphia to study at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. Since graduating from the certificate program with a major in painting, he
has exhibited his work at galleries in the Philadelphia area and in New York.
