Patricia Patterson

About: Welcome! I’m an Oakland, California based photographer, artist and writer. I love capturing a diverse range of subjects, some that tell a story, create a somber mood, simple beauty or form. I’ve been involved with Art of the African Diaspora group since its inception in the late 90s. My focus is on fine arts and photojournalistic work, capturing people, places, things, abstracts and portraiture.

More info: I’m proud to be an Artistic Achievement Award winner of Art of the African Diaspora in 2000, for “Parade”, (above), my portrayal of youth at a Black Cowboy parade. I sell handmade greeting cards at my online store The cards depict my larger pieces, sold at exhibits, fairs, online and my studio. I love connecting with art supporters, customers, other artists, to encourage and swap stories.
