About the Designer

Born in British Columbia, Patricia A.Skorah/ Burnett has been an artist since childhood. Studying classical piano with Donna Fishwick, and coached by renowned teachers and performers such as Dr. Robin Wood at Craigdarroch Castle in Victoria, and Barbara Custance and Phyllis Shuldt in Vancouver,she earned her Toronto Royal Conservatory A.R.C.T degree at an early age. In the years to follow, she went on to express her artistic abilities through her music as a professional singer and keyboard player with popular rock bands LOWER MAINLAND, TRIX, PANIC, and JUNCTION. Patricia also performed as a professional lounge piano player and singer at the Devonshire Hotel in Vancouver headlining in the Carriage Room,Delaneys,and the Airport Inn.

In 2005, Patricia's artistic flair took a new direction. Seeing the beauty in many "retro" pieces of jewelry she had collected over the years, Patricia turned her talent to re-inventing them into "One of a Kind" pieces of Body Art Jewelry. These unusual designs have quickly become popular, and today, Patricia's unique jewelry is sought after.
