Pat graduated from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh with a degree in graphic art.
Her love of art was a source of great joy which she shared with her students while teaching art at Christian Bible Church Academy for over 10 years.
Her passion was to impart Gods Love through her love of art to her students who were very special to her.
Pat’s eye for beauty and Symmetry are evidenced not only in her art, but also in her lovely gardens both providing a space of peace and tranquility.
Pat married Gregory Parker on December 3, 1988, they shared 30 wonderful years of marriage. They enjoyed gardening, traveling the Lakes Region and seacoast as well as weekend getaways to New England’s bed and breakfasts.
