Meet Local Artist Patrice Drago

If you are in or around the Annapolis arts scene, odds are you have met or heard of Patrice Drago. Whether it is through her artist residency at Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts, blogging for Annapolis Discovered, serving as a Board Chair for Maryland Federation of Art, or being an advisor for the first ever Annapolis Arts Week, Patrice can be found both creating in and serving the local arts community here in Annapolis.

While chatting with Patrice about her work and process, I mentioned to her that her large scale abstract pieces often give me a sense of happiness and joy. With bright eyes, she replies, “Thank you so much for saying that. That is truly my goal; to create out of a place of joy.”
