Patt is a California native, born in Culver City, raised in the San Gabriel Valley in the City of Monrovia, and for the past 37 years has been a resident of Huntington Beach. Patt was a student of the fine arts and has always had a love for photography. In the years past she experimented with digital photography manipulation and 3D anaglyph photography.
Patt spent 27 years in the graphic design field working as an in-house corporate graphic designer and later as a freelance designer. Her design work clients included Canon, Thermador, Bosch, Siemens, Gaggenau and other well-known brands.
After retiring from graphic design, Patt was able to concentrate more fully on photography. Patt chose all things “hot rod” to photograph after she and her husband purchased a purple 1933 Ford Vicky and started attending car shows and car events.
