A self-taught photographer trained in painting and drawing, Patricia is particularly interested in culture, history and human nature. She has decades of travel in over 40 countries and years of work in visual arts and social justice efforts, project creation, photography, fine art exhibitions, teaching, community development and fundraising.

As the Co-Founder of an award-winning affordable housing nonprofit and volunteer with refugee support organizations, her work has been an exploration of humanity, both near and far. From the jungles of Borneo to the Drag culture of southern California, her interest in blending photographic work with a quest to promote understanding between cultures has powered her imagery for many years.
