About Patti

I have always had an affinity for drawing.  I spent my childhood in Washington, DC and developed an interest in the many historical buildings in the area.  Because of these two interests, I decided at an early age that I would grow up to be an architect.  As sometimes happens, time and circumstance intervened and I became a teacher instead, all the while continuing to develop my drawing skills.

 

Thirty-four years later, at my family's urging, I retired from teaching to pursue my dream of being an artist.  I specialize in "building portraits..." pen and pencil sketches of houses, churches, college campus buildings, or anything that holds a personal connection to my clients.

 

I currently live in Williamsburg, Virginia with my husband and have two adult sons who live with their families in the Washington, DC area.

 

I look forward to working with you!
