Patsy Whiting was born in Bolton and studied in Loughborough and Manchester. After a period of working as an artist whilst bringing up a family, she began a career in teaching art. This eventually led to an Educational Audiology post in Bolton Sensory Service teaching deaf children aged 3-18.

Patsy continued to produce art throughout her career in deaf education, working in a variety of media, including print, sculpture, and painting. While teaching, she developed skills in visual presentation and digital animation which became her key expressive medium. However, a visit to the Picasso museum in Paris inspired her to begin drawing again in earnest and to leave teaching. She now has a studio in Loughborough, Leicestershire.
