I am an artist, novelist, graphic designer, poet, and inspirational writer who is committed to making an unforgettable difference in this world that is sure to inspire future generations. A natural analyst and fervent thinker, much of my work is inspired by my contemplation, experiences, and interactions with the world around me and the society in which I have matured. I perceive messages in every aspect of existence, which explains the philosophical potency of my work. Furthermore, I am very creative, and have a particular knack for playing with words to generate artistic interpretations of a concept. One thing that I have learned in this life is that it is dangerous not to practice what you teach. That being said, I am intent upon inspiring the world not merely through my works, but through my life as well. I want the world to see the beauty and originality that results from living what one believes.
Life presents before us inspiration on a daily basis. We receive this inspiration through what we experience first-hand, what we witness second-hand, and information received from secondary and tertiary sources. It is this "education" that has given birth to "Thinking Words," a collection of reflective quotes by Joshua Patterson intended to analyze the intriguing nature of life and living.
