Biographical history

Nancy-Lou Patterson (1929-) is a writer, artist, scholar, teacher, novelist and poet. She received her BA in Fine Arts from the University of Washington in 1951, and in 1962 moved to the Waterloo Region where she became Director of Art and Curator of the art gallery at the University of Waterloo. In 1966 Professor Patterson taught the University’s first Fine Arts course, and in 1968 she founded the Department of Fine Arts, twice serving as Department Chair. As a scholar, Patterson is well known for her writings in the area of mythopoeic art and literature, with particular focus on the works of C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, George MacDonald, Charles Williams and Dorothy L. Sayers. She has written extensively on the traditional arts of Swiss German and Dutch German Mennonites of Waterloo County, and also on the art of Native Canadians. Her work includes both book and exhibition reviews, and exhibition catalogues. She has also published poetry, fiction, and juvenile material. Nancy-Lou Patterson's artistic career began in 1953 when she created a mural for an Anglican Church in Kansas, and includes a series of stained glass windows designed in 1964 for the chapel at Conrad Grebel University College at the University of Waterloo. Her liturgical commissions have involved work in textiles, stained glass, wood, metal, terra cotta, and calligraphy. In 1993 Nancy-Lou Patterson was named "Distinguished Professor Emerita" by the University of Waterloo, and in the same year received an honorary doctor of letters degree from Wilfrid Laurier University in recognition of "a life dedicated to expression."
