From an early age Patti has always felt compelled to express
hereself. Her inherent creativity has always sought an outlet.
Twenty years ago, Practical Patti picked up everything and moved
from the Beaches in Toronto, Canada to the village of Puerto Vallarta,
Today, in her eclectic showroom / botique, you will find not
only unique handpainted clothes and accessories, but home art
in a variety of mediums. Everything from whimsical rugs and cushions
to duvet covers, handpainted dollas, wooden figurineds and unusual
handcarved painted tables and chairs.
99% self-taught, Patti's designs and themes have matured along
with the woman. The childlike images and brignt primal pallets
of her designs reflect her own simplicity, and confidence. Her
themes are integral to whi she is as a human being: her life experiences
have made her value what is honest, unfettered, and childlike.
Her keen interest in the empowerment of women resounds throughout
Patti's work appeals to people from all over the workd, with
regular customers from places as diverse as Texas, Germany, and
Japan. Her designs have been sold wholesale outside of Mexico
in fine galleries, botiques and specialty shops in New York, Cape
Cod, Denver, Phoenix, Detroit, San Francisco, Miami, and Palm
