Patti Best was born in Haywood County. She moved with her family to Michigan when she was four only to find herself moving back to Canton, NC after marrying her husband, Hugh.
Patti has always loved drawing, painting, building, designing and pretty much anything creative. She has said school held little interest for her unless her schedule was full of art and history classes! She didn’t seriously consider a career in the arts until much later after her children were almost grown. Her first piece she created was a 5 piece oil hardwood panel of a Canton Farm scene that was 5’ x 10’. From there over the years, Patti has created works large and small. She enjoys painting on canvas and board the beautiful landscapes, waterfalls and woodlands we are blessed to live amongst.
“The goal I have for my artwork, is that even on difficult days, another person can walk into my paintings and be refreshed by the beauty of our Father’s creation”.
