As a child, Pat had either a book or colored pencils and a tablet in her hands.
Artist Norman Millet Thomas gave her impromptu painting lessons in Portland in the early 1970s. He encouraged her to continue painting. But life happens and Pat became a noted stained glass craftsman in southern Maine and Sarasota, Florida. She wrote several chapters in “How To Work In Stained Glass, 3rd edition” with her late husband, Seymour Isenberg and wrote her own teaching book, “Stained Glass Step by Step”.
Now that Pat has moved back to New England, she sees inspiration in her neighborhood. She picked up her brushes again, taking classes with Odin Smith at CCAC. When not ‘wagging a brush”, she and husband Stanley Ferro are crafting silver jewelry as Kaleidoscope Silver &Glass for sale at craft shows.
Pat is a juried artist at Cape Cod Art Center and a member of the Dennis Monday Painters group.
