Featured Artist: Patrizia Donaera
Huntly House is glad to recognize our first featured artist. Her name is Patrizia Donaera, and her beautiful artwork is featured on the cover of Huntly House’s first publication, The Taming, a middle grade novel written by Atticus Krum. The Taming is due for release 12.12.12.
Having spent twenty years as an illustrator, Patrizia specializes in children’s publishing and natural history illustration. She uses mostly traditional techniques (watercolor and colored pencils) although as of late she is also entering the world of digital illustration.
Her favorite subject for illustration is the animal realm. She attempts to grasp the magic and expressiveness of animals without altering their natural features. She defines her style as “highly detailed” with “anthropomorphic” animals, as she loves to capture animals’ expression and soul.
Patrizia has illustrated more than 20 books, and her artwork has twice been selected to be exhibited during the 2000 and 2007 “Illustrators Exhibition” held at the Bologna Children’s Book Fair.
Based in Italy, Patrizia and her family live in Savona, a city overlooking the Liguria sea.
