Pat moved to Nevada with her family from California in 1958. She took painting lessons from some of the best local artists in the Reno/Carson City area and she stresses that she is a “location” painter, not a “studio” painter. Her paintings of buildings and landscapes, done throughout the state over five decades, now have gained historical relevance, as they illustrate how those scenes have now disappeared or changed. Pat is a founding member of the Carson City Brewery Arts Center, as well as an emeritus member of the prestigious Reno Latimer Art Club.
