Pat Stokes teaches and conducts research at Barnard College, Columbia University, where she is an adjunct professor of psychology. However, her expertise on creativity is hands-on. Prior to becoming a psychologist, she painted at Pratt, wrote advertising copy at J. Walter Thompson, and became a creative group head at Ted Bates & Co. Her approach is that of a practitioner, applying a constraint-based strategy (acquired in art and advertising) to analyze the careers of renowned creators, to interview current creators, and to help future creators understand their own development.
