All About Me:
My name is Patti Stevens and I have always had a great love for the arts and design. I have a B.A. in Studio Art with a concentration in Design. I also have a B.A. in Marketing/Business and an Associates Degree in Interior Architectural Design and currently working toward my M.B.A. in Vocational Education.
I have worked the past twenty years in the retail industry but always on the creative end. I have done visuals and store interiors for multi million dollar retail chains. I have staged events for the stores and of course always with impeccable customer service skills.
Shades of Orange is dedicated to supporting the fine arts in a creative, safe, learning environment that will encourage imaginative thinking as well as individual interests and skills; always with a sense of fun and wonder for children and adults.
Why An Art Studio?
Nine years ago I found that it was time to do what I truly love, and Shades of Orange was born. I think an art studio lets everyone find their creative self. I also feel this is very important to children, especially those who do not get enough of it in school and just love to do it. There is no right or wrong in creating and once technique and mediums are introduced to the student..the sky's the limit! Most of all it's a lot of fun to discover your creativity at any age.
