"Living my life as a 'lifelong learner' - that is key to my existence."
Pattie grew up in Colorado, and spent most of her life there. After a career of classroom teaching, she moved to Kansas in '06 to a place that considers itself the 'geographic center' of the contiguous United States. In contrast, it's a much different life - but she has kept her eyes wide open. ART continues to 'save' her.
This artist focuses on working to keep her eclectic style loose, use color and light in a way that makes one smile, and attempt to simplify her subject in a harmonious capture.
Oil, pastel, and watercolor are her favorites but she loves to experiment in many mediums and subjects..animals being her first choice.
"I feel such a kindred spirit to many furry and feathery creatures."
"ART SAVES LIVES. Art 'saves' me today and every day ~ and has for as long as I can remember."
