Art Display

This month Roxborough Library is showcasing fine artist Patricia Jenkins.

Patricia Jenkins was born and raised in Buffalo, New York, there she attended the State University College at Buffalo and earned a BS and MS in Art Education.

Ms. Jenkins taught Art and Gifted Education in the public schools for twenty years, worked in Human Resources for seven and currently runs a faux finishing and mural business called Fauxto Finish,Inc.

She has two grown children, and one grandchild. Patricia and her husband, Jeff, live in the Roxborough community, near Denver, Colorado.

Her favorite media is bronze but she resorts to pastels, drawing, and painting to fund the expensive sculpture. She is currently exploring resin based Pebeo Mixed Media paints.
