Patty resides in Ridgway, Colorado with her husband DeGrey and various critters including a growing herd of Tibetan Yaks. As she wanted to explore the various uses of their fiber she became interested in weaving. After a visit to Tierra Wools, she signed up for a class and became addicted to the craft. Noy you can often finder her hard at work on one of the looms.
Patty is currently exploring various styles of weaving and enjoys employing traditional, as well as contemporary design elements in her work. She is especially drawn to the rich colors of the desert Southwest and hopes that her weaving captures it’s spirit.
Patty also is a gifted knitter and has created a very whimsical flock of knitted sheep representing a myriad of breeds.
In her free time, Patty can be found outdoors enjoying gardening, horseback riding, traveling, hiking, fishing, and frolicking with her yaks.
