Patricia was born in Grottammare, Italy, and immigrated with her family to Australia in 1962.
She trained as a botanical watercolour artist from 2000-2008 at Jenny Phillips' Botanical Art School of Melbourne. In 2006 she developed an interest in acrylics, and miniature still life paintings replaced botanical art as the primary focus of her work. She now enjoys painting large-size still lifes and has recently taken up landscape painting.
Her work has been published in the National Trust of Australia's desk diaries and she has exhibited and sold her works at the Botanical Art School of Melbourne, Emporium Botanica in Armadale, Jenny Pihan Art galleries and the 2010 and 2011 Camberwell Rotary Art Shows.
Paricia particularly enjoys depicting intense colour contrasts in her paintings.
