Patti Klein grew up in Oregon and spent a lot of her spare time over the years with various arts and craft projects. She was always busy creating something and usually had multiple projects going at the same time. So after she quit working in 2007 her good friend Lou talked her into taking some painting classes at Portland Fine Arts Guild so that she wouldn’t get “bored setting around the house with nothing to do all day”.
Now she is an award winning artist, working in several media including her favorite media Watercolor. She also works in Acrylics, Colored and Watercolor Pencils and Chalk and Oil Pastels. She loves creating art and still does find time for some arts and crafts projects too. The best part is that she is never bored.
