Patti Resso


As an artist, Patti Resso is influenced by the beauty of the movement of watercolor paint and the spontaneity achieved with the mixture of water and its unexpected meanderings across the paper.

Patti was born in Cleveland, OH but lived in the tropical beauty of South Florida for over 40 years. She currently resides in Surf City, NC. Patti is inspired by bold colors of tropical landscapes, oceans, waves, coastal beauty, birds, and our beloved pets. She seeks to portray a laid-back attitude and a loose and free technique in her paintings. Patti started painting in watercolors in 2011, took a few workshops and classes, and is still learning the endless techniques available with this medium.

Her goal with painting is to capture the beauty, or the emotion of the subject, to hope to let the viewer take themselves away for a minute…

Patti is currently a member of the North Carolina Watercolor Society, Signature Member of the Palm Beach Watercolor Society, Florida Watercolor Society, National Watercolor Society, American Women Artists, and the Artists by the Sea art club.
