Patrizia Montanari was born in a small town just outside of Milan, Italy. She has experienced art all her life. She started traveling in 2002 and since September 2013 lives, with her husband and two children in the Historic District of Downtown McKinney, Texas. She fell in love with the History and soul of McKinney and its wonderful and warm community and feels this town's inspiring her every day.

In the last few years her love and passion for portraits and figure painting naturally evolved and introduced her to photography. Very quickly taking photographs became almost an obsession, a new way to express her artistic side.

The only way to stop time is to photograph moments, a way to appreciate the past is looking back at those images which overtime become priceless.

Patrizia loves making people happy and the art of photography has given her that wonderful feeling. Since January 2014 she started the MCKINNEY FOTO project, taking photos of families and her children using The Historic District of McKinney as a perfect background for her family portraits. Patrizia also has a Studio on Historic Virginia Street and loves to discover new outdoor locations every day.

Find out more about Patrizia's views and passion for her new home town on her blog "ON THE SQUARE" where she opens up about the McKinney Downtown Square and the surrounding Historic District.
