Patti Tapper

Painter & Sculptor

As an artist my goal is to delight the viewer. In my still life paintings I strive to share the joy I
experience from nature and the world around me. Each day I work to create, living with
purpose and an optimistic approach. I treasure my opportunities to discover new ways of
seeing and learning new techniques.
I am a passionate collector of books, colorful textiles, flowers and interesting objects. These
influence what I include in my work, pushing me to create with a more colorful palette and bold
brushstrokes, keeping the focus of my work personal, and reflecting my love of light, color and
I am excited about my latest series of work, incorporating colorful collage elements, hand
painted papers and words that inspire me, all adding a new dimensions and strength to my art.
