Pat first started woodturning about 45 years ago, however, life got busy, and she took a break from turning. About 15 years ago, she took some refresher classes at the Indianapolis Art Center, and she was hooked for good. Since then, she has taken instructions from local, national and internationally known woodturners.
Traditional woodturning starts with a single piece of wood. The size, grain orientation and colors of the wood will frame how it can be turned into an object like a bowl, platter, or vase. She also enjoys segmenting woodturning.
She sells her pieces at several Galleries and shops in Central Indiana including Gallery on the Square in Danville. She also does commissions.
Pat is a member of the Central Indiana Wood Workers, American Association of Woodturners, American Association of Segmented Woodturners and the Central Ohio Woodturners Guild
