Born in Gimli, Manitoba, Patti Simko was raised on the homestead property in Manitoba’s Interlake region. Growing up on the expanse of farmlands Patti’s creative and imaginative side sparked her love of drawing, painting and writing.
Patti spent many years dedicated to her career as a legal assistant and raising her two children. It was Patti’s daughter, a graphic designer, who encouraged Patti to return to creating. The two are often found painting together, sometimes for hours on end.
Patti and her family are avid outdoors people and she finds her inspiration from nature around her. Her main medium is acrylic, however she also enjoys other mediums such as watercolour and coloured pencil.
