Patricia has a BFA in Interior Design. One of the required classes for her degree was beginning painting. It wasn't until she moved to Sedona, Arizona in the early 1990's that she started painting southwest images and selling them in the Scottsdale area. She paints in a variety of mediums on canvas, wood, leather, and gourds. Painting is her passion. She won the 20th anniversary poster contest for the Colorado Winefest. She enjoys painting all images and welcomes commissioned pieces. Currently she is working on a cover for book.
