Patricia Welsh has been working at Hamrick School as a truck driving instructor since 2001. She likes teaching, but her students and co-workers have recently learned about another one of her passions – drawing and painting!

Pat started painting early on in her childhood for family and friends. She sold her first painting when she was a freshman in high school. Now, besides painting, she also likes to work with stained glass and is known for her beautiful lamp shades. When she sells her art works, she donate 50% of the profit to a charity or to someone who needs help. Her latest Amish country landscape painting titles “Autumn Amish Farm” is devoted to her dad.
