Pat has been an artist/craftsperson since she was a kid. Her interests range far and wide but since graduating from Carnegie Mellon, weaving has been Pat’s first love. She was introduced to Pysanky in 2000 while living in Ford City, which has a small but active Ukranian community.
Pat found that some of the same skills it takes to weave are needed to decorate eggs: patience, mathematics, digital dexterity. She loves that she can turn everyday materials like yarn or eggs and wax into works of art.
