Patti was born and raised in Eau Claire Wisconsin. Her daddy was a truck driver and
invested heavily in real estate. Her mother was a furrier designer with her own at home
Inspired by her parents to generate her talents in art, design and sewing, Patti began selling her paintings at the age of thirteen. She amassed quite a reputation in Eau Claire and had constant work up to the time she married and moved to Florida with her husband David, after college graduation. (Wis. State University, Eau Claire)
Patti studied to be an art teacher (no one was surprised). It didn't actually put groceries on the table until the 1980's when she got a art instructor position at Kenai High School in Kenai Alaska. That lasted about three years then she was off to open her own art gallery in Girdwood Alaska called the Chalet Gallery. After five years of selling mainly to the tourist market, the adventurous mindset of this artist took her and her husband to Connecticut. He was employed as an actor in many roles in various movies, as Patti opened her own graphic design studio in Waterbury Connecticut. She continued there many years in conjunction to having three professorships. She taught at the University of Bridgeport for one year. She was recommended to the University of New Haven and stayed for thirteen years. Later Patti was asked to join the staff at St. Vincent's College in Bridgeport Connecticut. She was there for ten years.
There was something better coming!

MISSION: To see people transformed spiritually, emotionally and physically by the love and power of the holy spirit. That all believers would be equipped to bring a full manifestation from heaven to earth. Patti also desires to write gospel music that has the power to lead the lost into the truth of Jesus Christ through exhortation.
