A lifelong resident of the Westerly/Stonington area, Patty Nunes is
a retired Elementary School teacher. She began painting in 2010 when she studied with Ralph Acosta, noted Mystic, CT watercolorist. A lover of travel and her hometown, most of her painting depict the beauty in our local area, and vistas throughout the U.S. and Europe.
