Gladwin County
native to Michigan, Patricia K. Burns-Riegle has always been drawn to the arts, but only began pursuing her passion seriously the past few years. 
She classifies as a self-taught artist having completed The Famous Artists School correspondence course, located in Westport, Connecticut as her main source of art education. 
In addition, she has taken some summer courses at Kirtland Community College in Roscommon. Working with amateur and professional artists from various art organizations and galleries encourages and ignites her passion of becoming a serious artist. 
“I would classify myself as a magical-realist,” Burns-Riegle said. “This allows me to showcase my technical skills while entertaining the viewer with my view of the world. Often nature and human activity are my subject matters as I define the colors and shapes I see. I allow the subject matter to dictate the medium that I use since I am comfortable using a wide variety of painting and drawing mediums. Many of my works are from my personal photo reference.”
Her work has been shown in several juried art exhibitions including, the West Branch Creative Arts Fine Art Show, Gaylord Area Council for the Arts Annual Exhibition, Saginaw Township Arts in Public Places Art Exhibit, University of Michigan – Dearborn Campus Art Exhibition, The Besser Museum Northeast Juried Art Exhibition in Alpena, Midland Artist Guild Show, Gladwin Area Artists Guild Fall Exhibition and The Greater Michigan Art Exhibition at the Dow Museum of Science & Art. 
Several of her works have earned awards including Best of Show, People’s Choice Award and Saginaw Township Purchase Award. 
“My goal as an artist is to create works of art with movement and emotion,” she said. “these themes can be appreciated by people from all walks of life.”
