Patricia is a glass bead and jewelry artist. She took her first torchworking (lampworking) workshop at Pratt Fine Arts Center in Seattle, Washington in the early ‘90s. She found her passion that weekend and has been pursuing it ever since. She is primarily self taught but has taken classes from Larry Scott, Kimberly Affleck, Corina Tettinger and Jari Ann Sheese, all renowned glass bead artists. Her artistic voice is constantly in motion and she finds inspiration in moments of solitude. She is heavily influenced by shape and the intersection of arcs and lines both in the topical application of design and in the intersection of beads in jewelry design.
She has a BA from the Evergreen State University in Olympia, Washington. she has taught one-on-one lampworking classes in here home studio for ten years and has taught basic intermediate lampworking at a small school in Australia. She is a member of the International Society of Glass Beadmakers.
