Mermaid with a Camera. As a resident of Laguna Beach, CA and annual Sawdust Festival Exhibitor, the mission of her photography is to capture in coastal tide pools and in the underwater environment, rarely seen moments in time. Patsee says "the idea here is to have an image flip from photo-realism to an abstract image, imagined but very real. There is no manipulation of these images on the computer or in the darkroom. They are what my eye discovers and my camera captures. This sea life of shapes, colors and forms amazes and astounds me as they appear in my work. My intention has always been to explore these tide pools, not to alter them. I work to find the right camera angle from which the inhabitants and the environment can be the most they can be, whatever that is! The intimacy of the tide pools allows me to explore space, angles, reflections and light as they constantly change with the tide, currents and path of the sun. My concern with saving our oceans is personal and vital to our environment. I am a representative for these saltwater inhabitants, and a spokesperson for saving their vital cosmos by showing the world how life can be, beneath the sea, in a tide pool of reflections and light."
