Welcome to my website, where you’ll find words and images about food, gardening, and photography. I have fun with many other topics, and share them from time to time—for example, a little bit of Leslieville history, updates on my gardens, and what some of the other Pat Andersons are up to.
I’ve created a separate site for commercial photography over at PatAndersonPhotography.ca. Visit me there to browse through my portfolio of images.
My photos are for sale, either as prints on canvas or on manufactured goods. Contact me if you would like to buy a print.
I’ve completed the Food and Product Photography and Business of Photography courses at George Brown College, and am offering introductory pricing for commercial products. Contact me.
My eBook on the Toronto Nurseries, Pioneer Gardening in Toronto: the trees, plants and Lore of George Leslie, is now available.
