Artist of surreal and visionary themes, Patricia was born in 1970 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where she lived and worked until moving to the United States. Although part self-taught, she has had some formal training in visual arts that included academic drawing classes and a degree in Fashion Design. But it was just after leaving her homeland that she considered the possibility of becoming a fine artist more seriously. Currently she has been consistently working as a fine artist, illustrator, and designer, basing her images on her passion for the figurative art combined with geometric and expressionistic abstracts. Working primarily with pencils, her inspiration and aesthetic references come from several sources, from the theater and ballet to Eastern Art, from the Art Nouveau and Jugendstil to the contemporary Pop Art, including occult symbolism, Tarot, Astrology and metaphysics. Patricia is currently a member of the Energy Art Movement.
