Patti has always been creating things. She graduated from Rhode Island School of Design, earning a degree in Interior Design. She has lived most of her life in Rhode Island and her designs tend to have beach themes to them. She started designing with beads in in 2001 as a hobby and diversion from designing homes. Since then the passion has evolved into a full time career. She incorporates different textures and materials in her creations and often works with Crystal Clay, polymer clay, and leather with the beadwork. She can be found working and teaching small classes in her studio in downtown Syracuse with her faithful pup, Tucker.
