After opening and operating Capitol Art Center and Patris S12 Studios in midtown Sacramento for several years, she decided to relocate her studio, gallery and art center to Historic Oak Park to join the revitalization efforts underway -- returning to the community where she first became an artist. On July 14, 2012, Patris opened the doors to the public and my long-awaited dream to have an art center in Oak Park materialized.
At her Oak Park studio, she creates artwork, teach weekly drawing and painting classes, hold open studio life drawing and painting sessions with a live model, coordinate artist workshops, art exhibits, and other art events. One of the main themes of my creative pursuits is working from life - whether outside on location “en plein air," setting up a still life to paint, or having a model pose in the studio. In her studio gallery, she features my artwork along with a variety of artwork by several other prominent artists in the region.
