A Coventry born artist Patty Townsend was largely self-taught. She took some lessons from John Burgess RWCS.
The artist married into the family of
a wealthy industrialist and lived at Attleborough Hall, Nuneaton. At
that time she added her husband's surname Johnson to her own, and
thereafter painted under the name Patty Townsend Johnson.
