Patrick Klauss was born in 1971 in Lucerne, Switzerland to Czech parents who sought political asylum in the West. In 1981, Patrick’s family moved to Toronto, Canada where he still lives, works, and pursues his artistic endeavours.
Patrick has traveled extensively and has always been drawn to "sacred spots" around the world. His photographs document his journeys. Patrick has exhibited his photographic art in numerous art shows around the Greater Toronto Area including the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition and Toronto Art Expo.
He has also exhibited in Prague, Czech Republic. In the 2012 International Photography Awards, his work "Lamayuru" was selected as one of the Top Country Picks for Canada (2nd place).
