PAT has been a professional artist since her training in painting and printmaking
at the University of Michigan (1966-1970). Pat is the artist and designer with
Chip being the perfect facilitator. Chip often claims his job description includes
any work that Pat doesn't think is fun. Chip had years of experience in the
building trades before he joined Pat in the studio full time in 1990. The couple
both lived in Mt. Clemens, MI since childhood, until moving to their Up North, MI
home in 1998. They intended to move south, but lost their hearts to a special
spot in a wetlands on a small lake in Benzie County. Pat designed their house
and studio and Chip, as always, the perfect facilitator, built Pat's plan.
Pat returns to her printmaking "roots" (she began her art career doing
wood block prints and etchings). She is doing combination prints  on
her computer and printing with a large format printer and archival inks.
Her digital work has twice been chosen for inclusion in the prestigious
Boston Printmakers International Print exhibit.

Pat and Chip are no longer doing outdoor art fairs,  freeing up more  time for Pat to concentrate on her
watercolors (
in the studio and plein aire) and her digital prints.
Pat Custer Denison and Chip Denison (both b. 1948) create unique, one of a kind ceramic tile fine art
paintings, often using shaped wooden frames, carved and painted.This energetic, creative couple (married since
1970) also do wood and tile combination mixed media "cut-outs". Pat has also added digital printmaking and
watercolor painting to her busy art life, keeping Chip busy building frames.
