Artist and native New Yorker, Patty Sherin has had a passion for colors, patterns and the creativity that comes with using your hands to create beautiful, engaging pieces people of all ages can enjoy.
What began as a hobby when her grandmother taught her to crochet at just 10 years old, quickly grew into her life’s ambition as she grew older.
Setting out on her creative journey, she had the opportunity to learn how to cross-stitch pictures and plastic canvas patterns by her friend, Annie, and further expanded her many artistic experiences in college.
It was in college where she became the Vice President of Knitting-It-Together—a charity organization that allowed her to create hats and scarves for local homeless—and participated in the Linus Project which allowed her to use art to give back to charity.
And then, in 2012, she received a Volkswagen T1 Camper Van which reignited her love of the colorful stacking blocks we all know and love—LEGO®.
The perfect medium for her to combine her love of colors and patterns, Patty’s artistic pursuits have thrived in the San Francisco Bay area thanks to support from the Create! Art Collective and families all over the area.
A hobbyist turned professional artist, her work has awarded her the Best Mosaic for Rainbow Drops at the 2015 Bricks By The Bay Annual Convention, been displayed in the Sanchez Art Center in Pacifica as well as The Museum of American Heritage in Palo Alto, and even recognized by Kathy Holly on PCTV's Spotlight.
She’s also the recipient of the “Amazingly Awesome” trophy from Pop Culture theme at 2017 Bricks by The Bay for her “Brick and Morty” mosaic.
Today, Patty is a Director for Bricks by the Bay™, a LEGO® fan exhibition that is inspiring children and adults to reach for their dreams, be creative, and create long-lasting bonds with friends, family and the love of art.
