Patricia was born and raised in Grande Prairie, Alberta, moved to Calgary, Alberta in 1996, then moved to Vancouver Island, BC in 2009 to pursue her dream of of opening a bed and breakfast. Besides operating her B & B and taking photographs, she also enjoys gardening, spending time with friends , loom knitting and going for walks in the beautiful Valley.

She is the proud Mom/Step Mom of four children, and the doting Nana of six grandchildren, but wishes they lived closer, so she could spend more time with them.

Patricia has enjoyed taking photos for many years, but when her husband gave her a DSLR (digital single-lens reflex) camera for their 18th anniversary, her interest and enjoyment of photography increased exponentially. 

Landscapes, seascapes, birds and flowers, are her favorite subjects to photograph.  Some of her photographs have been selected for the Comox Valley website, Destination Tourism Facebook page and the Coastal Community Credit Union.
