Winner of the First Place Award for three dimensional art in the TAG 2017 Open Show.

I was born in Dallas, Texas and raised in Mesquite, Texas for the majority of my younger life. I now re- side in Rockwall, Texas where I own a landscape business. The love of art started at a very young age for me. As with many young artists, drawing was the first thing I was introduced to and could do well. It was not until college that I discovered clay. For me three dimensional designs was some- thing I could create in a fully immersed way. It is a challenge to make sure that each sculpture engages the viewer from all angles. Being somewhat of a re- bel, I try to push the envelope on the finishes of my clay pieces. You will find wood stain, acrylic paint, and even electrical tape on some of my ceramic sculptures. I also like to incorporate wood and steel to add an extra element to the piece.

I have found some of my best work comes from the imperfections, unplanned events, and through ex- perimentation. As I grow as an artist, I know that future is unknown but that is what drives me in this creative journey. My goal is to continue to challenge myself, to think outside of the box, and to bring something different and innovating to the art world.

“Exploring Negative Painting”

Patty is grateful to the teachers, family and friends who have encouraged and supported her artistic pursuits. After moving to Texas, was able to reconnect with my love of art.
Patty has continued classes at TCC, she is active with both Haltom City’s Art In The City Gallery and TAG.

For our November Tag In The Morning meeting, we are going to explore negative painting. Bring your ideas or try some of our ideas. Will have some acrylics and canvas and watercolors and papers with brushes, few tools and containers. Let the fun begin!
