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. She moved into a studio at ArtSpace Maynard in 2001. While her kids grew up she did logo design, murals, painted traffic signal boxes, made t-shirts and greeting cards and did several book projects for self publishing clients. As her kids moved on to college she started illustrating full time. Her first picture book came out in 2015 and she won the NESCBWI Portfolio Showcase the same year. She lives in Greater Boston with her husband. They have two grown children.
Priscilla is a member of the New England Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, the Graphic Artist’s Guild and the American Society of Bookplate Collectors and Designers.
She loves New England and everything about it. Her other interests are cooking, sea kayaking, hiking, the outdoors and pretty much all animals. Corgis in particular.
