Michael Patterson, Phoenix, Arizona Member Since September 2012 Artist Statement I am a professional artist. I sit down every day and begin to work, waiting for the magic to happen. I doodle, paint, draw, sketch, cut, paste, and do whatever it takes to get what's inside my brain out. Life is an adventure and I want to document as many of the good or interesting parts as I can manage. I want to cover your walls with art and make people smile all of the time. I grew up all over the middle of the US and I like old, broken things. I have a dog and a cat. I ride a scooter and I love all of you.
