Patricia Lois Nuss is a practicing artist and educator specializing in photography. She is an adjunct faculty member at Seminole State College and Daytona State College where she teaches fine art and photography courses. Her artwork has been exhibited nationally, including the Corcoran College of Art and Design in Washington D.C., the Orlando Museum of Art, and the Florida State College Museum of Fine Art in Tallahassee, FL. She was also featured at the 2013 National Conference for the Society of Photographic Education as a panelist.
Nuss was born in South Kingston, RI. She received her MFA in Studio Art & the Computer in 2011 and received her BFA in Studio Art Photography in 2008, both at the University of Central Florida in Orlando, FL.
The absence of a female role model in her life has led Nuss to focus strongly on the feminine in her own work wherein she seeks to procure an intimacy with the women she photographs. In her research, she dissects the female idols presence and power in a variety of cultures and eras.
Nuss makes artwork that investigates the comparative territories of human emotion as it relates to the many facets of culture.
