Patrizia has gathered a twenty-seven years long experience as an illustrator, and began working with European and American publishing houses immediately after her illustration degree at Milan’s Istituto Europeo di Design.
Her work is mostly made according to traditional techniques, watercolor and colored pencils.
Her favorite subject for illustration was the animal realm; she attempts to grasp the magic and expressiveness of animals without altering their natural features.
Thus she accomplished remarkable mastery in natural history and educational publishing, forming in time a unique and personal style, appealing to the taste of adults and children alike.
Patrizia's work was selected twice to be exhibited during the 2000 and 2007 "Illustrators Exhibition" held at the Bologna Children's Book Fair.
“We have always been delighted with Patrizia's art work. Patrizia researches her topics exceptionally well so her illustrations of animals, birds, and other wildlife are always perfectly executed. She infuses her work with an underlying sense of humour which is often exhibited through the use of unusual perspectives. Patrizia communicates really well - I just wish I could send emails in Italian as well as Patrizia does in English! We have no hesitation in recommending Patrizia's work ... just as long as our projects come first!” August 15, 2012
