Buddha Statue
Patti Appel

I was a “Sunday Painter” for almost 25 years, but once I retired and the kids were launched, I was thrilled to finally have the time to dive into my painting passion. Initially, I began painting in


 watercolors but transitioned into acrylics due to their flexibility. Acrylics provide infinite creative possibilities with all of the textures, pigments and art boards available.


During Covid, I felt we all needed a good dose of encouragement, hope and happiness — for ourselves, our communities, our country and our world. So over the past couple of years, I felt a calling to brighten my walls with joyful hearts, colorful flowers and veggies, patient pups and splashy landscapes that lifted my spirits and, hopefully, the spirits of those who see my work. I hope you enjoy!


I am so grateful to be able to show my work at Bamboo Hair and Body, and send out a gracious thank you to Yasmin Caminiti for the opportunity!




Again, I can't thank you enough for this wonderful opportunity!
