Featured Local Artist: Patricia Stalter “Bytes & Pieces” On exhibit from until November 1st

We are excited to feature Patricia Stalter’s beautiful images at our restaurant!

Retired, I spend most of my time either behind the camera or in front of my computer. I picked up my first digital camera about 25 years ago, and you rarely see me without it.

Mostly self-taught, though I have taken some classes via the internet. I love every minute of the process of creating my work, using Photoshop and Corel Painter to produce my work. Corel Painter 2018 even has one of my pieces on their opening screen. I belong to local Art Guilds and hang at galleries and in business establishments.  Staying active keeps me young. Honored to have my work at the Cottage Hospital in Santa Barbara and Goleta.

These are exciting times to be an artist. Technology allows us the freedom to create any image, once we have mastered the tools. Digital painting is really digital image making. I say if you have the “eye” to see art and create it…then you are an artist, no matter what tools you use.

–Patricia Stalter

Each artist we feature has worked in very interesting career fields that over time changed and evolved into a concentration on artistic endeavors. They have owned and operated picture frame studios and art galleries and their backgrounds have informed their art and encouraged them to give attention to their own creativity. They have much to share with those who have the opportunity to view their work.
