Patti Walsh is an abstract artist living in South Minneapolis who hails from Detroit. She's been painting since 2017.
My love affair with painting has been present my entire life, but in more recent years I have let go of inhibitions. I’ve “shushed” my inner critic and am creating and producing at warp speed as though my life depends on it – because it does! Something has been ignited in me and I am driven…. I keep going and just want to ride it out.
Riding it out involves my continuous journey to express myself through color, movement, working with intuition, and the rawness of every moment. My work is filtered through my road-weary, sometimes jaded and warped mind with a unique “woman-elder” perspective. It’s pure feeling, mainly allowing chaos to self-organize into a form that might be understood visually – as I evolve and learn to understand that visual art expresses what we know without words but with experiences and sensory understanding.
"Well, I never got my license to live
They won't give it up
So I stand at the world's edge"
