Born and raised on Long Island, New York, Patti began vacationing in the Hilton Head area in 1987. Patti and her husband moved to the area permanently in 2006 and began showing her artistic creations at Pluff Mudd Art in Bluffton, SC in 2008.
In her late 20’s, Patti began making and selling macramé designs and holiday ornaments at shows throughout NY. A Surgical Technician, working mainly in ophthalmology, Patti found time during evenings and weekends to keep up with her craft. Eventually, her artistic interest turned toward jewelry which began with the help of her daughters.
Patti’s designs range from delicate to bold and bright, inspired by travels, trends and the beads themselves. She finds her art relaxing and enjoys spending her free time taking classes to learn new techniques.
