About Patricia Simmons:

“Art is my life. When I was four years old I decided to become a great artist. Am I there yet? Not quite but art has brought me to exciting places and a sense of serenity. Each time I do art I try to make it a WOW!! That means I can make a connection with the viewer in less than a fraction of a second. I am passionate about painting and drawing. I use any medium from crayons to coffee. I was able to attend classes at the Cleveland Museum of Art from second grade to the sixth
grade. It was like being in Wonderland!

I have my BFA from Cleveland State University. I took an extra year to be certified as an Art Teacher. I attended classes for 2 years at the Cleveland Institute of Art and Kent State University for one year. My graduate classes are from Ursuline Academy along with seven summers at Cleveland State University.
I taught art for 20 years and it was a remarkable experience. I have won many awards in my county and during childhood. Amazing professors in art school and college helped shape my talent and I am grateful to all of them. I believe my art is spiritually inspired. Subject matter is random and so are various media. Abstract art is my greatest challenge. Drawing and painting women intrigues me. Long ago I wanted to be a Fashion artist. Color is the primary element in my art.

My art has evolved over time for over seven decades now and I feel the best is yet to come. When you look at my art you are looking at what is in my heart and in my soul. Enjoy!”

Patricia is also now accepting commissions!
