Patty Voje is an award-winning artist based in Saint Paul, Minnesota. She is a figurative painter and most of her work is “alla prima” – completed in one sitting. Her command of bold color and expressive brushwork mark her style.
Patty has exhibited nationally and is the recipient of numerous accolades. She studied Fine Art at the University of Minnesota and at The Atelier of Minneapolis. She is proud to be affiliated with American Women Artists, Oil Painters of America, American Impressionist Society and Outdoor Painters of Minnesota. Born and raised in the Midwest, Patty grew up on a small hobby farm where she had the good fortune to include pigs, sheep and the occasional chicken as members of the family. Her love of animals figures prominently in her art. Patty travels extensively for both pleasure and painting. In the summer you can find her in her trusty Airstream, traveling the country to compete in plein air events, stopping along the way whenever a field of cattle presents itself.
She is available for individual instruction, small group classes and workshops. Patty is an inspiring teacher who believes that sharing her process and technique is just as important as sharing her finished work.
