Lillie Patricio was born in 1970 into the Acoma Pueblo. She was inspired to continue the tradition of crafting pottery from her Father, Mike Patricio, Sr., and her Sister, Samdrea Patricio. She began experimenting with pottery in 1985 at the age of 15. Lillie observed her family construct their pottery and this sparked an interest in pottery making. She also was economically motivated to pursue the art of working with clay using ancient traditional methods.

Lillie specializes in hand coiled and hand painting on ceramic pottery. She paints her pottery with very fineline starburst designs. She sections the pottery then paints on very fine line geometrical patterns and continues to repeat the pattern around the pottery. Lillie really enjoys painting the fine line starburst style. She also can paint animals and nature scenes freehand. Lillie signs her pottery as: Lillie Patricio,Pueblo of Acoma, followed by the year the pottery was made.
