About the City's Organizers

  • Patricia Foxx

    I have enjoyed the continuous learning process that making art offers me. Landscapes, still-lives, and portraits have been my subjects. Sharing my vision of the world, especially nature, with people gives me great joy. As a child I was introduced to art by my father, a professional artist. I have been involved with art all through my life, creating fabric art, teaching water color techniques, and drawing and painting on my own. I professionally designed and created fabric wall hangings and clothing for 17 years and now I paint using water colors, oils and acrylics. I live in a beautiful area that inspires me to paint landscapes.
