Her techniques have evolved from studying the works of artists she admires and experimenting with various tools to achieve her desired effect, which is photo-realism. She uses photographs as references for her drawings.
Patti is the recipient of various awards, most recently Honorable Mention in the category "Drawing" for the portrait "Star Fishing" in the online international Art-Competition.net and Honorable Mention for "Cat Lady" at the Hammonton Art Center.
