Patrizia Donaera, SAVONA Member Since October 2011 Artist Statement Patrizia has gathered a 24 years long experience as an illustrator, and began working with European publishing houses immediately after her illustration degree at Milan’s Istituto Europeo di Design.
Her work is mostly made according to traditional techniques, watercolor, inks and colored pencils although as of late she is also entering the world of digital illustration.
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.
