Our featured Artist of the month is Pat Knipe!

We are so excited to have this wonderful artist with us.

Pat has a well studied and rich background in art. At age 15 she was a serious artist. Her art was more than a hobby, it was an integral part of who she was.

She attended Mount San Antonio Junior College and excelled in oil painting. She continued her education at Cal State Long Beach, and her post graduate work at the University of Oregon. After becoming an accomplished oil painter she wanted to master watercolor and studied with Katherine Davis, Rex Brandt and Katherine Wengi to name a few accumulating over 200 hours of workshop time.

After her formal education she has taught and painted for many years. Whatever the medium she considers herself a colorist. "I feel color deep within my soul and enjoy the power it creates in my work.My passion for what I see help me to bring subject matter to life"
