Patti Paulus, a founding member of ‘The Palette & The Page,’ was born in Dayton, Ohio and graduated from the University of Dayton. She has lived and studied art in various cities until she finally settled in Maryland in 1987. She currently resides in the Fair Hill region of Maryland.
Words and letters have always interested her and she took her first calligraphy class while studying at the University of Dayton. Since then, Ms. Paulus has studied lettering, drawing, painting and design with artists from all over the United States, England, Italy and Germany. Actively working as a lettering artist since 1982, she practices calligraphy as an art-form and uses hand-rendered letterforms in her graphic design work. She also paints, draws and her new found love of charcoal is opening up fresh avenues of expression for her.
Patti has taught and lectured on calligraphy in Virginia, West Virginia, Delaware, and Maryland. Her work has been exhibited in Virginia, West Virginia, Delaware, Maryland, North Carolina and Ohio, and is in numerous private collections around the world. Hand-rendered lettering designs are on the walls of homes, schools and churches in Delaware, Maryland and Pennsylvania.
Something you may not know about Patti...
If you could have one magic power, what would it be?
I would like to be able to bi-locate in a second. That way I wouldn’t miss being a part of so many really cool happenings! The additional advantage is that travel would be instant too! So I could be in, say, Los Angeles, California at my son Joshua’s concert with the Pacific Symphony and working out with my daughter K in Elkton. So I could be with both of my children at the same time at opposite ends of the country. Of course, there would be other great perks as well - two amazing fund raisers, two great trips…working on two different art projects at the same time.
