While earning my BFA at California Institute of The Arts Graphic Design School; I also studied four years of figure drawing and caricature with Elmer Plummer in CalArts Disney Character Animation.
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 Art Studio; I primarily focused on publicity creating hand-drawn logos, illustrations, lettering, photography and print advertising. While raising our two wonderful boys I taught art at Roosevelt Elementary Santa Barbara. I currently offer group art workshops and individual private lessons to all ages in Los Angeles.
