Artist Bio: Growing up, Pat always had either a book or sketchpad and colored pencils in hand. She has had no formal training except for impromptu lessons with artist Norman Millet Thomas over a summer in Portland ME in 1975. He told her she had a talent and to continue developing it. But she returned to creating sterling silver and later becoming a stained-glass craftsman with her late husband John Daley. Together they built her custom designed lamps and windows for clients and ran J & P Craft Gallery in Scarborough ME until 1996.
After living in Florida for 24 years, working five jobs at a time and her husband Seymour Isenberg’s passing, she was offered the opportunity to come home to New England. Her former employer, and now husband, Stanley Ferro wanted to retire and move back to the Dennis area where he had grown up. Stan didn’t have to ask twice. Now they both make sterling silver jewelry, and she paints as Brush Works by Pat Daley and can be found at local craft shows in the summertime. Pat is in the process of setting up a new juried craft show venture as “A Different Drummer Craft Event” for 3 shows scheduled for Drummer Boy Park in 2022.
Pat is a Juried Artist Member of Cape Cod Art Association, President of the Monday Painters of Dennis, and the Yarmouth Art Guild’s treasurer. She has won a first place ribbon for “Bass Harbor Light” at CCAC and recently, a third place ribbon for “Bass Hole Marsh” at Yarmouth Art Guild’s Fall Exhibit.
