BFA in Scenic Design
Class of 2021
Patrick O’Shea is a Senior scenic design undergraduate studying at Carnegie Mellon School of Drama.
He was born and raised in Charlottesville, Virginia, where he developed a love of visual art, theater design, and an overarching passion for visual storytelling and community engagement with the arts. He is fascinated by finding ways of working visually to elevate narratives whether they be fantastical or grounded in the realities of our world, and loves to continue learning more from his ever-growing and varied list of collaborators and projects. In addition to theatrical design, Patrick is also interested in Concept art, creature design, and other mediums of crafting unique visual worlds. Outside of work, Patrick is an avid drawer, movie watcher, and comic book nerd, and honestly is just a nerd overall.
