My name is Patty Sjolin. Sjolin is Swedish and pronounced show Leen. I work in colorful vibrant acrylic paint. I love movement in my paintings with a touch of whimsy. My main creative influence was Walt Disney. I grew up on the old Disney animated movies and knew I would work there one day. Although I never got to work at Disney, I did get to work for Lisa Frank here in Tucson back in the 90’s. Some of my characters I developed have been seen around the world!
I am very excited to be accepted into the Oro Valley Artists & Makers Studios residency program!
I have done a lot of public artwork in Arizona and Texas and private commissions. Looking forward to being a part of this great team of artists!
