Patty Fleckenstein, Jordan,N.Y. Member Since December 2009 Artist Statement HELLO! I have been drawing and creating pictures since childhood....from life,imagination,photos, and combinations of these. My artwork presents a bit of a medley, using a variety of artists' media and a mix of subject matter. I'm a Central New York native,born in Rochester and grew up in Syracuse. After graduating from high school I was off to NYC to Pratt Institute and all the glory of Brooklyn. After attending Pratt I came home to the Syracuse area where I have been ever since. Now I live and work in a little Erie Canal village called Jordan with my young son and my little dog Garbo and my old cat Livvie.
