Born in 1984, Patricia Keller grew up near Rapperswil in Switzerland and studied Illustration Fiction at the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts. For her B.A. dissertation she designed and programmed a puzzle called “little something”, for which was awarded the Alumni New Talent prize.
She now lives and works as an illustrator in Zurich under the pseudonym “pattriz”. Her illustrations are always crammed with detail and often tongue in cheek, with a tendency towards deadpan humour.
