About Professor Patti

I have been teaching at Cypress College since 1995 in the area of Fine Arts. Today I chair the Art Department and teach in the areas of Illustration, Drawing and Life Drawing. I have, as most of my colleagues have, an active profession in the Arts. I have been a full-time Illustrator since 1986 and have worked for clients such as Lucas productions, Celestial Seasonings, Harper Collins, Random House, RCA, Stuart Tabori and Chang, Iseeme Publishing.

I have enjoyed bringing back all my experience in the publishing world back to my students at Cypress and to see them thrive and transfer on to great schools and careers.
