Patrick Faile
Raised in rural South Carolina in a farming community, Mr. Faile developed a deep connection to nature and wildlife.  He has a long term interest in art beginning at an early age and spanning more than 40 years.  His only formal education in art was through the public school system where he excelled.  After graduating from public school, his entry into engineering school gave him a new appreciation for graphic arts and his drafting skills flourished.  He became very skilled in the use of graphite and pen & ink in the preparation of architectural and mechanical drawings.
