Please allow me to introduce myself, I'm Patricia Miyao-Andrade, a client centered visual storyteller with more than a decade combined of experience in graphic work such as bookcover design publishing and illustration for both children and adults.
I've worked in the past with animation studios as well, in companies such as Magic Toons (Portugal), Neurones Planet (France) and Animais - Publicidade e Video (Portugal).
Currently, alongside with my design and illustration work, I have started dedicating myself to photography. I also produce short promotional videos for small business owners who want video reels to be used in social media marketing.

Work regularly as a bookcover designer to book publishers as one of their main designers providing a service that not only includes the cover design but as well the merchandise attached to it such as posters, flyers, logo designs,banners and invitations.
2001 - Present
Started to illustrate probably since a time of a very young age, were all piece of paper would be an excuse to create a tiny story. With the years passing by it became clearly one of the main motor skills in my artist life. It became the background to participate in book illustrations for children as “The Book That Lost it’s Letters” of Natalia Cordeiro or the more adult “30 days of Romance” from the British Sweet Meats Press Publisher.
1998 - 2004
Started as an animator in my very first work experience. From there I spent some years working in the field with some TV spots or in small TV Cartoon series such as: Escrotinhos, Franklin - the turtle and The Lost World. And later gave some assistance in the short animated movies: Stuart and Dinner in Lisbon.
