Patricia begins every project with sketches and extensive research. Pages of sketches and watercolor examinations are done before completely deciding on a theme or direction. She considers the sketches of her ideas to be the "Concept Art" of a photograph. Patricia feels that pre-prodution and pre-visualization is key to great editorial photographs. She hopes to fully immerse herself in the world of advertising, through creative and art direction to assist in creating new and exciting stories, to help sell product and make art.
Her current project is focused on making a magazine to show collaboration, Art/creative direction and layout design. it will be released on her website on the 15th of November in 2016.
