Reporting from the Art Dept inside the International Embassy of Ideas |

Hello and Welcome to my website!

I call it my 'Embassy of Ideas' - where I share my work and my life - behind the scenes and places I go. 

My name is Patti Friday.  I am a Painter Photographer.  ( Author, Artist and Wellness Community Member ) who began blogging in 2007 as a way to create and publish lifestyle content (editorials) about many topics that interested me. Lucky for me, you found those ideas interesting too.  Thank You! When you pop in here you will discover short, chatty and conversational posts, from my point of view, on Canadian life, family, the arts, food, entertaining,  travel, projects I am working on and much more!  

I photograph + paint botanicals, water bodies and landscapes, but I also love fresh, quirky, graphic imagery mixed with colourful, folkloric elements, symbolic layers + typography. Sometimes I digitally blend some of my collected images with my own photography, illustrations + paintings. They are modern and decorative; a wink for today's contemporary interiors. Available original works may be viewed in my online gallery shop.

I pen a weekly newsletter 'The Friday Newsletter'. You may sign up to here.

Artist Statement:

My works of art are visual records of the adventures that capture my daydreams and personal landscapes.  I explore my surroundings with a candid, cinematic and emotional approach.  I live life and photograph it.   Documenting the present that may hold a code to the past and predictions for the future in one sliver of time.  The photographic, abstract and folkloric storyboards coloured in my mind are filled with questions about sensuality, nature and the cultural mosaic of Canada. I want the viewer to experience unexpected picturesque chapters of imagined narratives with a sense of disorientation and ambiguity. Everything is interesting to me. That’s what I'm archiving. 

I love creating books because they make art accessible to everyone. Sometimes my words have illustrations and/or photographs. I also sell those original works here.
Peace Love Create Art,

Patti xo
