Patricia Simmons

From the time she was four years old, Pat has been an artist.  And today art is truly her life.  She attended the Cleveland Institute of Art, and graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Cleveland State University.  Pat taught art in the Cleveland area for twenty years.  She loves to draw.  Her abstract mixed media collage paintings are detailed with acrylic, pastels and markers.  Her juxtaposition of bold colors and soft blends are refreshingly different and expertly executed.  Patricia says color is the most important part of her art.  Over the years, her art has evolved into something she never imagined.  She has won many awards, produced three one-woman shows and several group shows.  Her personal goal as an artist is to one day have her art in an art museum.
