About Patty

While earning my BFA at California Institute of The Arts Graphic Design School; I also studied figure drawing & caricature with Elmer Plummer & T. Hee in the CalArts Disney Character Animation Program.

My career began at Image West Video Animation Hollywood, as assistant designer, preparing hand drawn images and creating storyboards for ABC Television and MTV music videos. Moving over to MCA Records Publicity and Universal Pictures; I promoted popular recording artists for Al Ebner, publicity VP.

Later establishing Patty Berns Design Studio; my focus was publicity, creating hand-drawn logos, illustrations, lettering, photography and print advertising. While raising our two wonderful boys I taught art and design at Roosevelt Elementary Santa Barbara. I currently offer group art workshops and individual private lessons to all ages in Glendale, Los Angeles. Thanks for visiting my website!
