Patrizia Stierli

Patrizia Stierli was born in Lugano (CH) in 1974, where she has lived and created for 30 years. Passionate about color and painting from childhood age, her artistic journey began as a self-taught painter until she met the artist Nando Snozzi, who immediately introduced her to oil painting.
