What you notice with Patti's work is the versatility of both style and medium. She can easily work from realistic to whimsical. She is as comfortable working in oils as she is in watercolor, acrylic and goache.
Her experience as an art director at Portal Publications helped to give her a good feel for the gift industry. She has done illustration work for cards, gift bags, mugs, stickers, clings, stationery, plates and gift wrap for a wide variety of clients. Patti has also done illustrations for children's books, magazines and advertising promotions.
After living and working in both New York and San Francisco, Patti now has a studio in the Santa Cruz mountains in California.
