Patricia Lillie was born in Ashtabula, Ohio in 1958. In 1976 she moved to New York where she divided her time between Parsons School of Design and CBGB. Upon leaving art school, she became a really good waitress. After a particularly hard day pouring coffee and serving sticky buns, she decided it was time to buckle down and focus.
Since then she has, among other things, written a few picture books, created a few picture fonts, and designed a few display faces. In 1986, Ms Lillie left New York to return "temporarily" to Northeast Ohio. She's been there ever since.
She would rather be designing type than doing almost anything else in the world. Just don't ask her for a refill on your coffee...
