Artist Bio

Patti L. M. Anastasi was born in the suburbs north of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Proximity to museums in both Philadelphia and New York, provided inspiration and fueled her imagination for becoming a visual artist. Her work combines painting, photography, encaustic, and mixed media. She holds a B.A. in Humanities and Art from Cedar Crest College, Graduate Certification in Healthcare Administration from University of San Francisco, and a Master’s degree in Psychology and Art Therapy from Notre Dame de Namur University. After moving to the San Francisco Bay Area in 1991, she was active in promoting the arts in San Francisco and Marin County through The Imagine Bus Project, an outreach program for children in underserved neighborhoods. She developed an after-school art program for Pickleweed Community Center’s Kid’s Club and has led expressive arts workshops for adults in Marin County, San Francisco, and, most recently, Asheville, NC, where she relocated in 2014. Patti’s work has been shown in various locations in California, Pennsylvania, New York, Maryland, Florida, North Carolina, Grand Caymen Islands, and the U.K. She currently lives and works in Asheville, NC.
