Pat Webster is passionate about the land. An artist, writer, popular speaker and experienced gardener,
she explores the connections between landscape and history throughout her work. Glen Villa Gardens,
Pat’s 750-acre private property situated in the Quebec Eastern Townships, provides a canvas for Pat’s
love of horticulture and her artistic reflections on the deep history of the land.
“I believe that representing the history of a site and the people who inhabit it strengthens an
emotional response and allows people to look deeper into the beauty that surrounds them. It opens
their eyes and makes their hearts sing.”
Site and Insight is a written and visual narrative of Pat’s reflections on art, landscape and how history
colours our view of the world, and of the garden.
Widely traveled with a deep knowledge of international gardens, Pat has led sold-out garden tours in
Europe and writes about the gardens she tours throughout the world. An accomplished writer and
speaker, Pat lectures across Canada and the United States. She is also an acclaimed artist who is
available for commissions including site-specific installations and sculptures.
