Currently residing in Meeker, Pat teaches figure drawing, painting, and research methods at Colorado Northwestern Community College.  She was drawn to NW Colorado because of its diverse landscapes - from mountainous terrain to high desert venues.  Interested in preserving a sense of “now” in the face of rapidly changing times- she most enjoys working on location and from life.  Her subject matter is drawn from the landscapes and life she sees around her.
