Patty Kennedy Hudson

Opening one’s eyes to see the simple beauty in nature and everyday objects, provides inspiration. Ever-changing light and color in the landscape around me are constant sources of amazement.

Since early childhood, painting on ANY surface has been my passion, and continues today. Earning a BFA in Painting, Printmaking, and Ceramics provided me exposure to different mediums for creativity. Shortly after college, starting a family became my focus. Once my sons started school, I became certified in K-12 Art Education which allowed me to work with children of all ages as well as developmentally challenged adults. Seeing anyone, regardless of abilities, take pride in their creation, was most rewarding. Currently, working with a variety of mediums, depending on my surroundings, provides opportunities to expand and explore my artistic interest.

As a newcomer to the area, becoming associated with Firnew Farm Artists Circle has rekindled my creative spirit.  I am grateful for the support and encouragement of likeminded artists.
