woody patterson

Woody Patterson received formal art education at an early age becoming familiar with many mediums and techniques. Later, his interest in visual arts resurfaced while attending college. There he combined fine art and business interests with an emphasis on visual communication in preparation for a career in graphic design and advertising. He resided in Atlanta, Georgia after his education and embarked on a profession as an art director. Eventually, he returned to Alabama and, in 2012, began to dedicate all of his efforts to fine art.
