Pat recently retired as Co-Director of the Medford Arts Center (2017-2020) and as resident artist and curator of the Hansen Warner Building Gallery (2010-2019). So to say the least, she is entrenched in the photography and art community in South Jersey.

Pat’s passion is in teaching photography. She gives group and private lessons in Photoshop and the fundamentals of photography; and leads small groups on photography workshops to exciting destinations across the country and Africa. She believes the experience of photography is as important as the end result.
Primarily a nature and wildlife photographer, Pat travels extensively throughout the United States, Africa, and Europe capturing award winning images of the people she meets and places she goes. She has visited 5 continents and 48 countries, including extended month-long visits to Tanzania, Rwanda, and South Africa. As result she has more than 15 solo and small group exhibits to her name and has curated over 20 additional exhibitions since 2010.
Her work hangs in various AtlantiCare locations, Penn Presbyterian for Advanced Care, Medford Lakes Municipal Offices, 541 Barbershop and private collections. Her work is for sale at the Medford Arts Center, Medford Lakes Colony, The Painted Turtle, and the largest selection is found on her website. She earned a Bachelor of Arts in Communications, specializing in film, television and photography from Seton Hall University.
Pat’s vision is simple. Take the ordinary and make it extraordinary.
Very simply, I want the viewer to feel as if he or she could just step through the frame of my photographs and become a part of the scene. I work to transform this 2-dimensional art form into a 3-dimensional experience. The subject and message of my images only enhance the viewer’s emotional connection to my photography.
