Patricia Bankhead

I began as a self-taught artist, honing my skills for hours in the library and drawing portraits of classmates for $10 each as a teen. Later in life I took art courses at various universities. I got serious after I retired, spending 4 years majoring in fine arts at Southern Utah Univ. I’m still hungry to learn.
