MAUREEN TRACY PATROLIA - Freelance Illustrator

I graduated from U-Mass Dartmouth in 1988 with a BFA in illustration. I continued my education and art experience at the Rhode Island School of Design and with many regional artist organizations. I am a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) and have made many friends through SCBWI critique groups and conferences.

In 1997, I began drawing and painting on commission. This work has consisted mainly of children's portraits, but also includes pet and house portraits, and wedding portraits/programs.

In 2001 I had my first publication. In Sensory Motor Activities for the Young Child, I completed 48 illustrations of children participating in various activities (in b/w pencil) for Imaginart, Inc. I enjoyed the project greatly as I am also a pre-kindergarten teacher and am constantly inspired by my young students and family members and was able to portray many in this book.

Later in 2001, I completed a cover illustration also for Imaginart. My black and white drawings can be seen in the First Facts Book of Sex & Babies published by Magination Press, Fall 2002.

My husband and I live with our family and mischievous dogs in Plymouth, MA.
