Patrick O’Brien was a draftsman in a naval architecture firm and earned a degree in biology from the University of Virginia before attending art school. For almost twenty years he was a freelance illustrator, specializing in historic and prehistoric subjects. He has worked with such clients as National Geographic, Newsweek magazine, The Discovery Channel, The Smithsonian, The American Museum of Natural History, and the U.S. Naval Institute. His artwork has appeared in magazines and newspapers, on posters and greeting cards, and even on billboards.

In 2003 he entered the marine art field. His first entry to the annual Mystic International Marine Art Exhibition won an Award of Excellence, and in 2007 his work was used as the cover image for the catalogue of the show.
