    Pati Bannister (1929 - 2013)

    Born: 1929 North London, England / Currently living in Gulfport, Mississippi

    Bannister is a "poetic" painter of young female figures in various
    media. She often includes women, lacy clothing, and spring flowers in
    her creations. An avid sewer, she pays attention to detail in the
    clothing she paints. When she gets an idea, she sees it in her head as a
    finished color painting.

    Since childhood, Bannister knew she
    wanted to be an artist. At age thirteen, she illustrated books, and by
    age seventeen, was creating artwork for films. She attended the Slade
    Academy of Fine Arts in London. Bannister has been published by New
    Masters Publishing Company.
