Hi, my name is Patricia , I was raised along the Louisiana bayous . And would not have wanted it any other way . I grew up in the midst of God's beautiful creation . With cypress trees , bayous , wildlife , and pure country living . In other words , I was blessed . Maybe not monetarily , if that's your idea of being blessed ; but it's not mine . I know the hand and eyes of God were watching me all that time growing up . But I was doing my own thing (thank God for His mercy ) . But then one day , I realized I was tired of just doing my own thing . That day was back in 1983 . That's when I stopped running from God , and started running toward God. And what a wonderful journey it has been since the day Jesus came into my heart .
Now concerning my art . I got my first camera ( a lil pocket 110 ) when I was 12 . Photography became my passion for the next 30 years (of course I did move up from my lil 110 ) . Then in 2000 the Lord birthed a new passion in me . Painting . I've traded the shutter for the canvas . I love painting , although I don't really do as much of it as I would like .
