Priscilla studied illustration at Mass College of Art and Umass Amherst and did her graduate studies at Syracuse University. While raising her family she made art whenever she could, moving into a studio at ArtSpace Maynard in 2001. While here kids grew she did logo design, murals, painted traffic signal boxes, made t-shirts and greeting cards, and did several book projects for self publishing clients. When her kids moved on to college she started illustrating full time with her first picture book “Hold This” being published in 2015. She lives in greater Boston with her husband. They have two grown children.
