Patricia Getha captures the beauty of the natural world in her art and photography. Whether it be a landscape or a living creature, her subjects are often intimate portraits of nature, wildlife and domestic animals that have influenced and captivated her since early childhood. As a child and teenager, she could frequently be found wondering the woodlands near her home on foot or horseback, usually with her faithful canine companion at her heels. Other times she would be in the creek catching snakes, fish and other aquatic life forms, often bringing them home to show to her father who was instrumental in instilling an appreciation for all God's creatures.
As a professional artist painting primarily animal life in oil, acrylic or graphite, her photography has been an invaluable resource and has become an art form in itself. She especially likes to paint miniature art, defined as works that are 25 square inches or less and 1/6 scale.
