Patricia V. Lewis
After over 20 years ago, Patricia Lewis unexpectedly became quite interested in photography. This happened after a fluke encounter during a friend’s college graduation, which resulted in the camera jamming and regretfully being unable to take any pictures of this special occasion. Having worked numerous events including weddings, retirements, birthdays, baby showers, church activities, and various other stuff, Patricia’s true heart now belongs to nature. She would prefer to stoop in a field for hours, with no set schedule or constraints, rather than be confined to structured events. All things nature is a pleasant, welcome must for her. Ms. Lewis has won vast photography competitions over the past three years; and has had her work displayed in several countries. She has also received massive recognition and exposure, having been published on calendars, social media, virtual exhibitions, virtual and physical galleries, and books. Her first win was an International Juried Photography Exhibition for Street Photography. The exhibition and Opening Night Reception took place at the Praxis Gallery in Minneapolis, MN.
Patricia continues to work on her passion and strives to further excel in her craft.
It took quite a few years to conclude that my greatest joy…my true niche….comes from nature, and all elements involved as such. Beautiful, bold, bodacious, blooming blossoms, especially in springtime, but adored in any and every setting, are a sure sign of nature’s introduction of a brand-new beginning to another glorious season filled with abundant life. This is my peace, my bliss, my escape from stress. Although I do still photograph other select moments on occasion, usually at the request of others only, it is almost certain I am a nature photographer at heart and in practice. I will continue to sprinkle my magic in this genre of the arts. I am excited to discover what level of accomplishment will be achieved next on my journey.
