Fine artist Patricia Czepiel Hayes, owner and sole proprietor of Hadley Design Works, has been painting and drawing since she was very young. Her compositions are inspired by the natural world and the general sense of hope that lives in her imagination. She works full time in traditional oils, exhibits mainly in western Massachusetts, and has been extensively collected. Her most recent series — “Waterfalls” — is in the early stages of development. During the pandemic, Patricia continues to stay in touch with her audience through the Paradise City Arts Festivals’ on-line communications, her website and social media, as well as through safely distanced, masked, in-person studio visits at her Easthampton, Massachusetts location.
