Patti Sevensma

Having grown up on the shores of Lake Michigan, Patti Sevensma compares her love of creating art to her life-long fascination with the serene, but often turbulent lake.  "It's beautiful, awesome, and terrifying all at the same time. Making art is the same way. Every project is an adventure in and of itself."  As the lake is ever changing, Patti, too, continues to change as a multimedia artist. She is learning not only to enhance her creative process but also to make her life more exciting and fulfilling.

 

Patti's innovativeness has always been at work. Early on, she developed a love of drawing, designing, and even sewing her own clothes. As her sons entered high school, Patti focused on becoming a professional photographer and also began taking art classes at GRCC along with local instructor Loretta Sailors, who has been a significant influence on her work. Patti also took workshops led by nationally known artists in drawing, watercolor, collage, and mixed media. Her goal has always been to try as many mediums as possible before she dies.

 

Patti shares her passion for learning by teaching classes and workshops to inspire others to discover the joy of making art. She teaches photography, with an emphasis on how to capture and design a great photo, critique class for artists seeking to improve their design and composition skills and watercolor for beginning artists.

 

Patti's artwork is on display at The Flat River Gallery and Framing in Lowell, Mi, Mullaly's 128 Studio and Gallery in Elk Rapids, Mi, Museum Contempo in Shelton, WA., Frames Unlimited Galleries in Grand Rapids and other locations in the Midwest. She is a member of the National Collage Society and President of the International Society of Experimental Artists.  For information about classes and her artwork contact Patti at pattisevensma@gmail.com.
