Meet the Artists

At long last I have the opportunity to learn to paint with oils.. I've dabbled in pastels, colored pencil and charcoal years ago. "Lake Lure Artists" have encouraged and helped me along. I've even dared to go large...the Lily Pads are a 30"x 40" oil painting in progress. It's fun! It's great to have artist friends and meet with them twice a month
Pat Konicki graduated from American Academy of Art and began her career as a graphic designer and illustrator in Chicago.
Pat now resides in the Carolinas, where she derives much of her inspiration to pursue her love of painting. The use of both watercolor and colored pencil offers a unique detailed study of often forgotten treasures found in the rural areas of North and South Carolina.
An avid quilter and knitter since the mid-nineties, my retirement and move to Lake Lure in 2019 presented an opportunity to develop new techniques for manipulating fabric and wool: machine applique, wet felting, and needle felting. Creating needle felted dog and cat portraits thrills me these days, and I do accept commissions. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org
