Patty began her dream of leading an artistic life by studying at Crealde School of Art in Winter Park, Florida where she was granted a fellowship and then accepted a position of Studio Artist.

When Patty  relocated to Southwest Florida 11 years ago, she had the opportunity to continue painting and teaching on a full  time basis. Patty recently moved back to Central Florida where she will continue to explore subject matter that inspires her creativity and her passion for mixing color.

Her ‘loose and juicy paintings reflect the coastal lifestyle she enjoys living in Florida.  She patiently layers transparent color allowing the paint and paper to do a lot of the work. This process products many unexpected bursts of color. 

She is a member of Florida Watercolor Society, Central Florida Watercolor Society, McRae Art Studios, and  Crealde School of Art.
