Patrick Meyer was born in the Eastern part of France, in a small town close to Strasbourg in the Rhine Valley - a stronghold of one of the oldest Jewish communities in Western Europe. With a Catholic mother and a father with a Jewish ancestry, he grew up with a strong interest in Jewish and ancient history around the Mediterranean Basin, seeking a spiritual connection with his Jewish roots. In the mid-90s, Patrick relocated to San Francisco, California, where he established himself as a metal sculptor and designer, specializing in Judaica and pewter items for the home.
