Patricia was born in England and has an Honours degree in science and a diploma of education from the UK. She taught for a number of years before becoming a full-time artist in 1976.

She has a love of nature and an eye for detail, and has exhibited widely in Western Australia, winning many awards.

Since moving to Margaret River she has illustrated eight natural history and walking books.

These include a Field Guide to the Wildflowers of Australia's South West with Jane Scott and The Magical World of Fungi.

This is the first book dedicated to children that Patricia has illustrated. She has risen to the challenge given to her by Felicity with beautiful paintings that are both scientifically accurate and a sheer delight.
