Pattie Appleby Bio

Pattie got a late start in the art scene after a long career in Corporate Human Resources.  Starting out with stained glass and fusing, it was a quick move to metalsmithing when I needed to frame what I had done.  I have taught at The Spruill Center for the Arts, and I am currently teaching for The Metal Arts Guild of Georgia and for the Southeastern Federation of Mineralogical Societies, and I am an avid student myself.  I have learned from some amazing artists and would love to share that knowledge with my students.  Get ready to have some fun and make some beautiful pieces of art!  “Don’t say you can’t because I know you can!”
