Lives In Oakdale, Portland

Patrick Stavens (born 1994 in Rockville, Connecticut) is an emerging artist who lives and works in Portland, Maine. In May 2016, Stavens earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Maine College of Art. Since graduating, he has participated in several group exhibitions on the east and west coast of the United States. Stavens also occasionally performs as the drag persona known as Paxil at LGBTQ related venues and events in Maine and New Hampshire. 

Why did you choose Portland? Aside from the art school that I attended, I chose to move here because of its walk-ability, supportive and passionate art and drag scenes, and that the streets get dead after 9.

What do you like to do with out-of-towners? I once was an out-of-towner, we all gotta start somewhere.

Where's your "happy place" on the peninsula? Anywhere that isn't experiencing endless construction.
