Patricia Kaegi was born in Northern California, her favorite place in the whole world. From an early age she was always doing something crafty or creative, like baking brownies or hand-weaving friendship bracelets. She carried a box of crayons (or a toolbox of pens) everywhere she traveled, near and far. After living and working in NYC for ten years, her husband, a native Long Islander, talked her into moving their family to beautiful Sea Cliff on Long Island, because it has a West Coast feel in a lovely small community. Patricia paints scenes filled with people, some reflecting their everyday activities and others representing the fantastical. All of her artwork is chock-full of whimsy and bright colors lighting up homes across the nation and the world.
