Erin Pata designs, prints, packages and creates all day long in her studio on the Pata Ranch, a centennial farm and ranch, on the pristine, but blustery, Central California coastline. She packages the farms goods for them and designs logos, packaging and other materials for small mom-and-pop operations who need a custom-made, unique identity. When she is done creating, she hops on her horse, Marge, or in her vintage camper, also named Marge, and heads out into the wide-open spaces of the West, looking for grizzlies and other adventures.
