A native Californian of Hispanic descent, Priscilla counts herself blessed to have grown up right across the street from her local neighborhood public library in Los Angeles, where her love and devotion for children's books was born.

Creating characters and images from ink, whether in the real world, or digitally, Priscilla delights most in bringing out the element of expression and emotion.

She is enthusiastically involved in the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) as National Illustrator Coordinator & Advisor, as well as a member of their Board of Advisors.
