Our Artists

Patricia Pestana

I am a Florida nurse who loves to draw. My inspiration comes from the Florida wildlife and scenery. The artists that inspire me most were the illustrators of the GOLDEN AGE OF ILLUSTRATION.

My favorites include Arthur Rackham, Edmund Dulac, Kay Nielsen and Maxfield Parrish…and the women Jesse Wilcox Smith, Kate Greenway and Virginia  Francis Sterrett. I am self-taught and always still learning.
