Patricia  Hart

Being a self-taught fiber & clay artist in the 80s inspired me to study painting, sculpting, design, and color theory at SLU. Now, a retired Talented Arts Teacher, I have returned to my roots as an artist focusing on metals and glass (enamel). Enameling allows me to apply color to metal. Its a beautiful, colorful, unique and expressive art form.
