Patricia Hobson, what a treasure!
My name is Donna and I would like to tell you how I come to love Patricia and her artwork. When I worked at Wachovia Mortgage Company, they would match your donation to one local charity each year. I chose the United Way of Yadkin County. If you donated at least $100, Patricia would give you one of her prints. For ten years, she worked with United Way giving prints to their donors. She is such a selfless person and made nothing in return from these gifts.
In the spring of that year, I was notified that I could go to Patricia’s gallery and pick up my free print. “Boy, did that start my shopping spree at her gallery!!!” After picking up that first print and meeting her and her husband, Felix, I would enjoy visiting her gallery often. They welcomed me with open arms whether I made a purchase or not.
Five years after that initial visit to her gallery, we built our first home. We had many blank walls. And, I knew that I wanted to showcase this very talented local artist’s beautiful pictures all over my house. A lot of her paintings are local scenes and some are not; but, I love them all.
During the process of decorating my new home, Patricia’s husband, Felix, matted and framed my prints beautifully. Then, since I only live a few miles from them, Felix came to my house and helped me place and hang each piece where they looked the best at no charge. WOW, what a bonus!!! This is the sort of people they are.
Now, fast forward 30 years. I am the proud owner of 17 of Patricia’s pictures! I can still walk around my house and admire them all. I never get tired of any of them. Her talents just amaze me to this day. In addition to her pictures adding warmth and beauty to our home, I am BLESSED to call her a friend!!!
I Found this in my doctor’s office this morning. He’s got great taste!
This Print “American Castle” is a beautiful portrayal of the Biltmore House. I started college in 2005 at the age of 50. This was a graduation gift to myself. I walk by the print every day and simply smile!

I met artist Patricia Hobson in 1990 and since then have bought several of her paintings. She has a way of making her paintings come to life and uses several different historical sites in Yadkin Co. as well as other places. Some of my favorites are “Nostalgic Rockford,” featuring the old Rockford General store, and “The Bridge,” a view of the old Rockford low water bridge. The River, pictured here, is special to me because I won it in a contest with Patricia’s gallery. It has the Pilot Mountain in it which I love to visit and see it from a distance. The Quiet place is another print of Patricia’s that features Pilot Mountain. I can just see myself sitting in the rocker and looking and looking at the beautiful view of the mountain. The Letter I liked because it because it had a lot of old buildings and a lot of forest. “A Log Cabin Winter” was a favorite because I like Cabin Homes. The snow makes it beautiful. “Morning Song” is another favorite of mine. I love the blue birds and the red flowers.
This hangs in Donna S’s home.
The Bridge: I loved crossing that rickety low water bridge. I would always take out of town guest across it. Some would hold their breath until we got across. My friends were in for a treat after crossing it….old fashion candy at the Rockford General Store.

More Testimonials About Patricia Hobson & Her Artwork
Dawn White Writes
Y’all, this lady, Patricia Hobson is not only an excellent artist. She’s a giving, kindhearted, beautiful and down to earth lady. She is so gracious and has awarded folks who participated in and win her very fun contests with her beautiful prints. I was so honored that I won my first Patricia Hobson art print. I have always dreamed of owning a piece of her artwork. Now, I own 2. I received the print that I won and purchased another called “A Coastal Breeze.” The reason I love her work is because the scenes mean something to my heart. The first print was “When America was Great.” It is a significant part of our local history. The Shell Station is owned by Tommy Garner, who was my band director in school for at least 7 years. The station has been in existence for many decades. Patricia paints a lot of historical places to help keep the memories of them alive long after they are gone.
During our first visit to Patricia’s gallery, my husband spied an original contemporary painting of hers the featured big read flowers. On the subsequent visit he purchased it. We can now boast that we own a Patricia Hobson original painting.
Please show this lady some love. She is a great talent from our area. I would also like to point out that her husband, Felix, does beautiful framing. You can definitely see the quality of work in the framing
