As the "unofficial Oak Park artist," Patris' painting of the Oak Park sign
was the featured image on the Oak Park Business Association's 2003
and 2004 calendar.  Her "Oak Park Treasures" collection has been
exhibited at the Shriner's Children's Hospital, St. Hope Development
Corporation Headquarters, and Christian Brother High School.  Many
of the paintings have been purchased by private collectors.
The "Oak Park Treasures" collection
Oak Park Artist Patris
I am enchanted with the urban landscape and select images that portray
life in the city.  I create vibrant images of Oak Park that reveal a positive
perspective, focusing on the hidden beauty and unseen charm woven into
the design of Sacramento's first established suburb. My greatest
aspiration is to support the renaissance of this neighborhood and invite
others to enjoy the treasures of Oak Park.
My work celebrates a community rediscovering itself:
depicting images of the past,
highlighting transformations of today,
embracing optimism for tomorrow.
