Patty’s paintings can be found in many homes and offices in the Dodge City area. Her art career had a humble beginning with a box of crayons and a Big Chief tablet. She admits art and design are her passions and are now reflected in everything she does, and she loves to paint from nature and her own flower gardens.
Patty was born and raised in Ensign, Kansas, and lives in Dodge City. She studied art at Dodge City Community College and Kansas State University, plus workshops in Colorado and New Mexico. She paints in oil, watercolor, pastels, and mixed media.
She taught art classes in the Dodge City area for over 20 years and was a Director at the Dodge City Area Art Council, and Marketing Director at Arrowhead West and Presbyterian Manor of the Plains. Patty owned her Interior Design business “Expressions” for a number of years.
Patty has been a member of 2nd Avenue Art Guild since 2010 and will teach a class at the gallery this fall.
