Inspired by nature and the world around her, Patti creates her unusual abstract art by exploration to let the creative process flow in the most natural way. Using fluid acrylics in a small dish, Patti creates her unique abstract artworks by drawing in the paint with a variety of tools such as clay sculpting tools, palette knifes, straws, and even a small cocktail fork. Then because the designs are so small (2-3 centimeters) she photographs them using a specialized macro lens. The nature of the process means that the images can only exist as photographs.

My goal is to create images that evoke some emotion to the viewer. I want the viewer to journey through my abstract patterns and colors and and see something new each time.

My paintings are not photographs of a painting as no painting exists. These are photographs of artwork created by mixing different liquids, paints, inks, chemicals, milk, or whatever I dream up and experiment with to create the abstract. The mixtures are created in small glass lids or petri dishes, and drawn with toothpicks or small palette knifes. Then, because the dishes I use for the paint are so small, I use a macro lens to photograph the abstract creation. The dish is cleaned and the ink or paint is washed down the drain, gone forever. All that remains is the photograph. The image is then reworked in Photoshop to create the final image.
