Patricia says “As described by my grandfather when I was born in Oporto, I was nothing more than a piece of meat.” She decided to become a designer after years of her wanting to become a geologist. Even though she’s still in love with the volcanoes, she now prefers to draw them. And that was the reason why she decided to study design in Aveiro and at Kunstpädagogik (Art Education in Leipzig, Germany). After these years taking the BA she started a MA course in Communication Design and New Media in Lisboa but decided to stop. Currently Patrícia, or Plastessina, is established as a freelance designer.
