Patricia Simpson realized her artistic passion during her childhood in Saginaw, MI. Urged to take a more practical life path, she earned a Masters of Arts degree in teaching from Wayne State University. It was at WSU that she was introduced to ceramics, which quickly became her constant form of creative expression. Throughout a 30 year career in education, she continued to make the time to pursue her true passion. Pat’s style developed into a unique blending of African, Australian and Asian cultures. Be it ceramic or painting, each piece is one of a kind. She now devotes 100% of her time to her art from her Detroit studio. She also participates in programs which mentor youth through art.
