“From Los Angeles, California, Daisy Patton moved back and forth between Oklahoma and California during her childhood. She spent much of her early years reading adventure and detective tales, history and art history books, and ghost stories.

One such series is “Forgetting is so long,” reviewed in “Art LTD” and “Hyperallergic,” as well as featured in “The Jealous Curator,” “Fresh Paint Magazine,” “Backroom Caracas,” and “Artistic Moods.” …..
