Patricia’s passion and sensibility for dressing is brimming with a feverish passion for the over-the-top frivolity and explosive design sensibility of a king or queen, circa mid-1700′s, with strong overtones of Marie Antoinette and Louis XIV of France. She could easily be the carefree girl swinging on a swing in the Fragonard painting. She likes to feel the thrill of royalty in her crowns at home, but she rules the streets of Manhattan in her layers of crinoline and bejewled everything, most of which she makes herself. Patricia is conscious of her uplifting effect on everyone – she gets mostly smiles and thumbs up. In her couture-like, runway-worthy, two-feet-high Queen of Confection hat, people are stopped in their tracks – she says there is that moment of silence and then you know “you did it.” She calls herself an assemblage artist – each piece that she owns down to her socks is unique and they all work together in mulitple ways – nothing has to match and nothing is bought with the intention of working with something else. It just happens through Patricia’s magical talents with composition and color. It’s hard to believe that her mom encouraged her to be a tomboy – Patricia lives in a home that is reminiscent of the most girly dollhouse imaginable. Down to the hundreds of one-of-a-kind vintage hair pins that she owns, it is obvious that Patricia is having a love affair with romance, whimsy, and pure enchantment.
