It turns out that Patty is accomplished at more than one art form. In addition to being a talented cake artist she is also an artist working in the traditional form of feather painting as practiced in her native country, Costa Rica.
Patty playfully calls herself the “Lead Costa Rican Searcher”, and along with her S.O. Paul, they have been on the chase for Forrest’s chest for a couple of years now. They decided to move to Santa Fe after searching in NM, being drawn to the creative and spiritual atmosphere and then visiting on their trek to Fennboree 2019.
But the newest event in their life is the opening of a small gallery and studio called “Marin” on Canyon Rd. in Santa Fe where Patty creates and shows her beautiful feather art.
Patty is having the Grand Opening and Exhibition of her gallery on March 27th. Pretty exciting. Congratulations and Good Luck Patty!!!
The chase has spawned another great human story.
You can find out more about Patty and her art and the fascinating history behind feather painting on her gallery website HERE.
I can’t speak for you but I know the next time I am in Santa Fe I plan to stop by and say hi to Patty and Paul and take a closer look at her feather art and maybe talk a bit about “treasure hunting”.
By the way, you can look at more photos from Fennboree 2019 HERE.
