About the Presenter:  

A caring and thoughtful art educator, Patricia Isabella Byron is an abstract painter and poet who was inspired by her years living in Turkey and Iran. She says she was compelled to paint and write about the natural beauty and historical sites, studying at the School of Persian Language & Culture at the University of Tehran, Iran. She continued her studies at Crealdé School of Art through the Fellowship and Studio Artist emerging artist programs. In 2006, she joined the faculty, teaching both adults and youth. Byron actively exhibits her work and teaches workshops at galleries and festivals, including the 2018 Epcot International Festival of the Arts.

Byron is dedicated to the students she teaches at John Bridges Community Center in Apopka and Maxey Community Center in Winter Garden, as part of longtime outreach partnerships with Crealdé, which supports the free after-school program designed to develop creative and cultural awareness through knowledge and appreciation of the visual arts. Byron has volunteered with ABCs, an arts program for children at The Coalition of The Homeless of Central Florida. She is an active member of VSA Florida, a private not-for-profit organization that provides arts, education, and other cultural opportunities for people with disabilities.
