Born in Oregon, USA, Patricia has lived in Italy since 2010. He has a Bachelor’s in Fine Arts & Graphic Design from Oregon State University and a Master’s in Landscape Architecture from the University of Oregon, USA. Her master’s thesis is titled: "Master Planning Urban Community Gardens: User-initiated Design, Usability, Adaptability and Sense of Place." The manual aids designers in creating community gardens that can achieve longevity and community support, both of which are often sought after but can be difficult to attain. In order to do just that, this thesis provides steps in garden development that consider user-initiated designs which focus on adaptability, usability and sense of place.
Patricia’s passionate is plants and landscapes, in particular the intersection between plants, people and living spaces. She understands there is a delicate balance that must be maintained when humans and plants live together for both of them to not only survive, but thrive. Plants have always been a natural part of our surroundings and Patricia believes that we are happier and healthier when they are at our sides, whether at home, work or out in the city. And, incorporating them into these spaces in a harmonious and beautiful way is what she does best.
