Pat Rosa Mizener of Cromwell specializes in painting portraits of some of our best friends, our pets. What started out as a thank you gift to a neighbor in 1972 resulted in years of commissioned paintings and the pleasure of meeting both the pets and their families. She has studied studio art and art history at the University of Hartford and Saint Joseph College. She retired from Saint Joseph College in West Hartford, where she was director of publication for 17 years, to have time to devote to painting.
